The history of published geoid determination for the British Isles over the last fiftyyears is reviewed. This includes global geopotential models, tailored geopotentialmodels, British gravimetric geoid models, and European gravimetric geoid models thatcover the British Isles. Proposals are made for a collaborative venture to produce a newgeoid model using the most recent data and computational techniques.

Penna, N.; Featherstone, Will; Gazeaux, J.; Bingham, R. (2013)The spirit-levelling–based British vertical datum (Ordnance Datum Newlyn) implies a south–north apparent slope in mean sea level of up to 53 mm deg–1 latitude, due to the datum falling on heading northwards. Although this ...

Tenzer, R.; Hirt, C.; Claessens, Sten; Novák, P. (2015)In geodesy, the geoid and the quasigeoid are used as a reference surface for heights. Despite some similarities between these two concepts, the differences between the geoid and the quasigeoid (i.e. the geoid-to-quasigeoid ...
