Also see Whang (1977) and Russell, Elphic and Slavin (1980) for Mercury and Venus, respectively. The surface temperature and pressure of Venus are from Avduevsky et al. (1971), while those for Mars are summarized by Carr (1981). 3. 14 'Equatorial radii and polar radii are at the one-bar pressure level; from Lindal et al. (1987) for Jupiter, Saturn and Uranus. Pluto's radius and mass density are given by Mc Kinnon and Mueller (1988). Reciprocal masses, M 0 /M p , are from the Jet Propulsion Laboratory ephemeris, courtesy of J.

Greater accuracy for 1950 and any epoch thereafter may be obtained by using the formula in Seidelmann, Doggett and De Luccia (1974); they also give the relations for the mean longitudes of the planets.
