A new general methodology is developed for the determination of the statistics of multisensor survey residual gravity. The method is ideally suited for the design of multisensor surveys to achieve a desired level of gravity recovery accuracy. Survey types considered consist of any combination of satellite radar altimetry, high-low satellite-to-satellite tracking, shipborne or land-based gravimetry and airborne gradiometry. Several examples of the results obtained with the methodology are included. Keywords Gravity surveys Gravimetric sensors Satellite radar altimeters Satellite-to-satellite tracking Gravity gradiometer Gravity field model. Author
