Venus: Moment of Inertia and Length-of-Day Variations

I describe science questions, challenges, and recommendations associated with measurements of the moment of inertia and length-of-day variations of Venus. Continued spin state observations of Venus with Earth-based radar speckle tracking offer considerable potential to elucidate both the interior structure and atmospheric dynamics of Venus.
