Abstract

The paper deals with the altimetry-gravimetry problems, taking into account the different situation with available terrestrial geodetic data on the land and sea part of the Earth surface. A unified formulation is given, from which all relevant problems can be derived as special cases. The related theory is briefly discussed. The primary subject of the paper is the numerical treatment of altimetry-gravimetry problems. For this purpose, a numerical experiment is invented, in which special numerical aspects of these problems can be investigated.
