Abstract:

Two methods of gravity measurements on water-covered spaces are discussed. In one method an ordinary gravimeter is provided with a remote control unit and lowered to the bottom of the sea for observation. The second method permits measurements on board a floating vessel or a submarine with the use of a special pendulum unit, or a special gravimeter.
