Abstract:

To provide geoidal topography over the world oceans, a radar altimeter carried by earth satelliteis planned. Ground truth calibration will be provided by a grid comprised of the equatorial belt and meridional traverses along the 30degreesW and 150degreesW meridians. Ground truth topography is derived from gravity values measured along these traverses. This report presents the free air gravity values and the computed free air anomalies obtained from 62.9degrees S to 57.5degreesN along the 150degreesW meridian. Author
