Tides have largest impact on gravity measurements compared to all other environmental effects. They are a direct result of the gravitational forces of the planetary bodies, mainly the Moon and the Sun. The magnitude of tidal effects depends on the relative position of planetary bodies around the Earth and can be computed from the astronomical ephemeris. In this paper, LTide software is presented, a lightweight application for computation of the tidal gravity acceleration effects according to…

Unified Tidal Analysis and Prediction Using the UTide Matlab Functions

A unified tidal analysis and prediction framework is developed. A self-consistent and complete set of equations is presented that incorporates several recent advances, with emphasis on facilitating

Worldwide Synthetic Gravity Tide Parameters

Synthetic gravity tide parameters (amplitude factors and phase leads) have been computed for the waves MF, Q1, O1, P1, K1, N2, M2, S2 and K2 in a worldwide 1° x 1° grid at 26995 grid points located

Modelling the global ocean tides: modern insights from FES2004

During the 1990s, a large number of new tidal atlases were developed, primarily to provide accurate tidal corrections for satellite altimetry applications. During this decade, the French tidal group

An ephemeris for gravity tide predictions at the nanogal level

SUMMARY An ephemeris for precise gravity tide predictions must match the nominal sensitivity of the superconducting gravimeter, 1 ngal. It is shown that this requires over one thousand separate

Time changes of the potential Love tidal parameters k2 and k3

The planet Earth is continuously changing in time, so there are phenomena that require continuous observation, including tidal parameters. The main goal of this study is to analyze time changes of
