Only use ship-track gravity data with caution: a case-study around Australia
MetadataShow full item record
Much of the ship-track marine gravity data in the Australian national gravity database must not be relied upon because several large (>900 mGal) biases exist in them. These biases were detected and cross-validated through comparisons with marine gravity anomalies derived from re-tracked multi-mission satellite altimetry and a recent satellite-only global geopotential model derived from the Gravity Recovery And Climate Experiment (GRACE). This shows the need to carefully screen ship-track gravity data to ensure that they have been crossover adjusted before they are relied upon in any Earth-science study.

Improved gravity anomaly fields from retracked multimission satellite radar altimetry observations over the Persian Gulf and the Caspian SeaKhaki, M.; Forootan, E.; Sharifi, M.; Awange, Joseph; Kuhn, M. (2015)Satellite radar altimetry observations are used to derive short wavelength gravity anomaly fields over the Persian Gulf and the Caspian Sea, where in situ and ship-borne gravity measurements have limited spatial coverage. ...
