Impact of terrestrial data on future satellite gravity field solutions
This study investigates the benefit of terrestrial data in regional focusing strategies for recovery of the earth’s gravity field from new satellite missions. The use of terrestrial data in a space-localizing approximation technique is discussed in a reproducing kernel Hilbert space. A simulation study reveals the characteristics of combined gravity field solutions as compared to satellite-only solutions.
