Gravimetry

Abstract

Recent progress in gravimetry has been remarkably influenced by improvement in the accuracy and reliability of absolute gravity determinations, which are now recognized as fundamental in establishing the worldwide network of base stations and calibration lines. Important advances have been made in the exacting operational phases of gravity measurement at sea, data processing, and techniques for delicate relative measurements over time scales useful in geophysical studies. There are interesting new developments in supersensitive detectors of gravity and its gradients.
