Abstract:

The prediction of mean gravity anomalies from other anomalies and satellite altimeter data is described using the technique of least squares collocation. The equations derived are then used in simulation studies, using altimeter data alone, to estimate the accuracy to which mean gravity anomalies can be determined with respect to an ellipsoidal reference field and a degree 12 reference field.
