How does inclination perturbation affect drift in local time of a sun synchronous orbit? e.g orbit with inclination of 98 degrees and height 600km with local time 10:30

  • $\begingroup$ This answer has the equation relating inclination to the orbit plane rotation rate. The extent to which the orbit plane rotation period is not one year is the local time drift. $\endgroup$ – Mark Adler May 12 '16 at 14:51
  • $\begingroup$ I disagree that this is an "unclear" question. I think it's clear and answerable (using the equations from Mark's link) even with just the first sentence. $\endgroup$ – Chris May 16 '16 at 15:11
