Abstract

The first serious works on the determination of the Earth’s gravity field in Croatia began at the Faculty of Geodesy, University of Zagreb, nearly twenty years ago and they have been extremely intensified in the last few years. Detailed review of all efforts and preparations can be found in (Čolić et al., 1993a). This poster presents the short survey of those investigations with the most interesting achievements. The final results for Croatian gravity field parameters, including the combination of different kinds of data - gravity anomalies, vertical deflections, satellite altimetry, topography, ... - are planned to be made public in the year 1995.
