Gravity and geoid in the Asia Pacific


save Download File (PDF)


This special issue invites submissions that show recent gravity data processing and geoid modeling works in the Asia Pacific region. In particular, we welcome papers presented in the first Asia Pacific geoid workshop (

This special issue welcomes papers that (1) show numerical methods for geoid modeling and the societal impact of a high-quality geoid model, (2) use latest global gravity models as reference fields in the remove-compute-restore procedure, (3) model the terrain effects on geoid, (4) use transnational gravity data for geoidal modeling and accuracy improvement, (5) report results of regional airborne and shipborne gravity surveys, (6) show the benefit of high-resolution, high-accuracy altimeter-derived gravity to geoid modeling, (7) use GNSS, deflection and leveling data to assess geoidal accuracy, and (8) reports potential use of new gravity data for geophysical studies, particularly in plate tectonics, volcanism, and seismology.
