b) that the same computational formulas, adopted at the XV General Assembly of IUGG in Moscow 1971 and published by IAG, be used as for Geodetic Reference System 1967, and c) that the minor axis of the reference ellipsoid, de®ned above, be parallel to the direction de®ned by the Conventional International Origin, and that the primary meridian be parallel to the zero meridian of the BIH adopted longitudes''.

Global and local reference frames
The goal of this review paper is to recall the concept of geodetic reference frame, showing its intrinsic dependence from all the information and choices related to its realization, and to discussExpand
A geodetic approach to gravity data reduction for geophysics
The currently adopted approach to reduce observed gravity data for geophysical purposes includes several approximations. These were originally used to reduce computational eAort, but have remainedExpand
On the use of Australian geodetic datums in gravity field determination
The treatment of gravity and terrain data prior to any gravimetric geoid computation is critical. If errors remain in the gravity or terrain data or both, these will propagate into any subsequentlyExpand
Precise determination of geoid height and free-air gravity anomaly at Syowa Station, Antarctica
From the International Terrestrial Reference Frame 1994 (ITRF94) coordinates of the Doppler Orbitography Radiopositioning Integrated by Satellites (DORIS) beacon marker at Syowa Station (69.0°S,Expand
LAGEOS geodetic analysis-SL7.1
Laser ranging measurements to the LAGEOS satellite from 1976 through 1989 are related via geodetic and orbital theories to a variety of geodetic and geodynamic parameters. The SL7.1 analyses areExpand
The worldwide physical height datum project
The definition of a common global vertical coordinate system is nowadays one of the key points in Geodesy. With the advent of GNSS, a coherent global height has been made available to users. TheExpand
What is a “ Global Model ” ?
In geodesy, by a global model we mean a global gravity field model of the Earth, also called a Global Geopotential Model. It is a mathematical function which describes the gravity field of the EarthExpand
Definition of Functionals of the Geopotential and Their Calculation from Spherical Harmonic Models
(TYPE=abstract)The intention of this article is to present the definitions of different functionals of the Earth's gravity field and possibilities for their approximative calculation from aExpand
Assessment of EGM2008 over Britain using vertical deflections, and problems with historical data
Abstract Vertical deflections synthesised from the Earth Gravitational Model 2008 (EGM2008) agree with astrogeodetic vertical deflections observed over mainland Britain to within ∼1·2″ RMSExpand
Validation of Vincenty's Formulas for the Geodesic Using a New Fourth-Order Extension of Kivioja's Formula
Vincenty’s (1975) formulas for the direct and inverse geodetic problems (i.e., in relation to the geodesic) have been verified by comparing them with a new formula developed by adapting aExpand
