Abstract:

The purpose of this contract is to generate and statistically describe deflections of the vertical for application in inertial land navigation. Three areas were chosen to provide deflection data representative of the range and severity of known gravity anomalies. These areas are one hundred kilometers on a side and represent three distinct types of gravity anomalies and terrain. The type I area for which south Georgia was chosen is characterized by minimal topographic relief and average gravity anomalies. The type II area for which Iowa was chosen is characterized by minor topographic relief and relatively large gravity anomalies. The type III area for which northern New Mexico was chosen contains moderate to sharp topographic relief and relatively large gravity anomalies.
