Summary

Stokes' method for finding the potential anomalies on the geoid benefits from the use of a well-chosen reference system based on a close-fitting Earth model (stated or implied) with minimal anomalies of g. A mode of determination of partial potential anomalies (from which lower harmonics are absent) for the case of incomplete gravity data coverage of the globe is suggested.
