Accuracy analysis of airborne gravity when gravimeter parameters are identified in flight
- 36 Downloads
In airborne gravimetry the data received from an airborne survey system is used to obtain the specific gravity along the aircraft path and to construct maps of the gravity anomaly. The quality of the maps depends largely on both the instrument noise and modeling errors. The paper discusses the errors in the estimated gravity caused by imperfect calibration of the gravimeter and how to calibrate the instrument using the survey flights data and the gravity maps.
