  • Dynamical evolution of high area-to-mass ratio debris in high orbit (a > 10000km) is analyzed, especially the geosynchronous orbit. The analysis provides a formulation of eccentricity variation by Kozai's method. According to the formulation, for GEO debris with inclination bigger than the critical inclination (63°26'), large eccentricity during evolution can be caused just under the influence of third body gravity and J2 term effect. And for debris with extremely high value of area-to-mass ratio, under the influence of radiation pressure and J2 term, resonant phenomenon occurs when the secular rates of the direction of the eccentricity vector caused by J2 term effect and the direction of the solar ecliptic longitude are close, and there is a relationship between the initial direction of the perigee and maximum value of the eccentricity during the evolution.
