Development of a new generation gravity map of Antarctica: ADGRAV Antarctic Digital Gravity Synthesis

R. E. Bell, C. Small, R. A. Arko


The U.S. National Science Foundation (NSF) has agreed to support the development of a new generation gravity map of Antarctica (ADGRAV - Antarctic Digital Gravity Synthesis), funding the development of a web based access tool. The goal of this project is the creation of an on-line Antarctic gravity database which will facilitate access to improved high resolution satellite gravity models, in conjunction with shipboard, airborne, and land based gravity measurements for the continental regions. This database will complement parallel projects underway to develop new continental bedrock (BEDMAP) and magnetic (ADMAP) maps of Antarctica.
