Abstract

This grid represents gravity anomalies of the Australian region. The grid combines accurate onshore gravity measurements, with satellite data over the offshore region. The cell values represent simple Bouguer anomalies at a density of 2.67 tonnes per cubic metre onshore and free-air anomalies offshore. The grid cell size is 0.5 minutes of arc, which is equivalent to about 800 metres.
