Abstract:

A statistical gravity field model has been developed for northern Texas, where the Gravity Gradiometer Survey System GGSS will be tested. The model is described in this report using both round-earth and flat-earth Attenuated White Noise AWN formulations. The model is fitted to all worldwide and local gravity-field information that is applicable to the GGSS test site. In addition, a discrete approximation to the AWN model is described, which can be used to compute simulated GGSS survey data and the surface truth data for the test area. It is expected that the AWN model and the derived simulated data will be useful for optimizing, testing, and validating GGSS data processing algorithms and software.
