Abstract:

A method is presented for rapidly surveying the gravity field of the earth over that portion of the surface covered with water. The techniques cannot approach the accuracies attainable with stationary gravimeters. The oceans of the earth comprise the majority of the gravimetrically uncharted portion of its surface. Only gravity measurements at sea is discussed in this work.
