Abstract:

The report investigates the use of an airborne gravimeter to detect and measure localized, high frequency gravity anomalies. In particular, the effectiveness of employing repeated flights over a region of interest to reduce errors in gravity anomaly determination is investigated. Computer simulations, including gravity modeling and aircraft motion modeling, are used to draw the primary conclusions.
