A BVP Approach to the Reduction of Spaceborne Gradiometry: Theory and Simulations
The possibility of using spaceborne gradiometric observations for the recovery of the gravity field has already been considered by several geodesist in view of the possible realization of the Aristoteles mission; the authors have already called the attention to the possible formulation of this problem in the form of an overdetermined BVP, there studying its formulation and the first analytical and statistical properties of the solution. In this paper the whole theory is summarized and simulated solutions are presented demonstrating the validity of the theory.
