The accuracy of Space Geodesy techniques have improved to such an extent that routine data analyses need to incorporate the effects of General Relativity Theory (GRT). A comparison between the accelerations perturbing the orbits of the two LAGEOS satellites resulting from GRT and other non-GRT accelerations are made. The analyses of the resulting data have to be done within the framework of a post-Newtonian formalism.
