THE INVERSE PROBLEM OF CONSTRUCTING A GRAVIMETRIC GEOID

Abstract:

Computation of a single geoidal height from gravity acceleration data formally requires that the latter be known everywhere on the earth. We present a computational procedure based on linear inverse theory for estimating geoidal heights from incomplete sets of data. The same scheme can be used to estimate gravity accelerations from altimetry-derived geoids. The systematic error owing to lack of data and the choice of a particular inverse operator is described by using resolution functions and...
