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 discuss

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,

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 are

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. The

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 Earth

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 a

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 a

The stability criterion for downward continuation of surface gravity data with various spatial resolutions over Ireland

The differences between local and reference geopotential values are the fundamental quantities of interest in the geodetic boundary value problem approach for connecting independent height reference

A comparison of gravimetric geoid models over Western Australia, computed using modified forms of Stokes's Integral

The improved fit of the model that uses a modification to Stokes’s kernel shows that this approach is more appropriate for gravimetric geoid computations over Western Australia.

Department of Spatial Sciences

The normal orthometric corrections used in the 1971 establishment of the Australian Height Datum (AHD) do not properly account for local variations in the Earth’s gravity field. Therefore, Helmert
