New Gravity Field for the Arctic



The study of the Arctic Ocean has been hampered by incomplete basic knowledge of the basin and its structure. An improved gravity anomaly map (Figure 1) and grid have been developed that complement the new International Chart of the Arctic Ocean [Jakobsson et al., 2008]. This article announces the availability of the Arctic Gravity Project (ArcGP) grid version 2.0 and discusses the genesis of the project.
