Three-Dimensional Geodesy and Gravity Gradients,
OHIO STATE UNIV COLUMBUS DEPT OF GEODETIC SCIENCE
Pagination or Media Count:
The report is a foundation of three-dimensional geodesy by means of Nonriemannian differential geometry. Based on the Frobenius integration theorem nonuniqueness, anholonomity or nonintegrability of geodetic measurements in their natural or astronomic reference system are proved. The characteristic Cartan object of anholonomity depends on either the gradients of the geogravity or the gradients of the standard gravity, the vertical deflections and their gradients. The results show the close connection between three-dimensional geodesy and gravity gradients. Author Modified Abstract
