Abstract

In May and June 1959 a regional gravity survey was conducted in Northern and Central Australia to provide additional data for a gravity map of Australia. 131 gravity stations were established, mostly in Northern Territory and Queensland. Commercial air transport was used; its advantages and limitations for this application are discussed. This form of transport enabled a large area to be covered rapidly with fairly accurate observed gravity values; however, the accuracy of the anomalies calculated is low, chiefly because of reliance on barometric levelling.
