The IAU Resolutions Committee has approved the proposals of the four Resolutions that will be presented for voting at the virtual Business Sessions in August this year:
- Resolution B1 in support of the protection of geodetic radio astronomy against radio frequency interference.
- Resolution B2 on the improvement of the Earth’s rotation theories and models.
- Resolution B3 on the Gaia Celestial Reference Frame.
- Resolution B4 on the use of a standard photometric system in ultraviolet (UV) astronomy.
Resolution B1 is related to the IAU’s ongoing efforts to preserve dark and quiet skies for the protection of the science of astronomy. The other three resolutions seek to establish and improve standards and reference frames, to facilitate cooperation in astronomy research.
