1 % *UDYLW\)LHOG7XWRULDO The formulae and derivations in the following Chapters 1 to 3 are based on Heiskanen and Moritz (1967) and Lambeck (1990). ([SDQVLRQRIWKHJUDYLWDWLRQDOSRWHQWLDOLQWRVSKHULFDOKDUPRQLFV The stationary part of the (DUWK VJUDYLWDWLRQDOSRWHQWLDO8DWDQ\SRLQW3UMO on and above the Earth s surface is expressed on a global scale conveniently by summing up over degree and order of a spherical harmonic expansion. The spherical harmonic (or Stokes ) coefficients represent in the spectral domain the global structure and irregularities of the geopotential field or, more generally spoken, of the gravity field of the Earth. The equation relating the spatial and spectral domain of the geopotential is as follows: Uϕ U U + ( FRVP + 6 VLQP) VLQϕ where Uϕ - spherical geocentric coordinates of computation point (radius, latitude, longitude) - reference length (mean semi-major axis of Earth) - gravitational constant times mass of Earth OP - degree, order of spherical harmonic 3 - fully normalized Lengendre functions 6 - Stokes'coefficients (fully normalized) (1.1) The 00 -term is close to 1 and scales the value. The degree 1 spherical harmonic coefficients 6 are related to the geocentre coordinates and zero if the coordinate systems origin coincides with the geocentre. The coefficients connected to the mean rotational pole position that is a function of time. 6 are Subtracting from the low-degree zonal coefficients (order 0) the corresponding Stokes coefficients of an HOOLSVRLGDOQRUPDOSRWHQWLDO 9UM leads to the mathematical representations of the GLVWXUELQJSRWHQWLDO7UMOin spherical harmonics, related to a conventional ellipsoid of revolution that approximates the Earth s parameters. At the Earth surface with U (in spherical approximation) the disturbing potential reads: 7 ϕ 8 ϕ 9 ϕ (1.2a) ( FRV P + 6 VLQ P)! " 7 ϕ 3 VLQ + ϕ (1.2b) with #$ $ and T defined on the geoid. Note, that '' is close to zero. 1

2 The maximum degree O(*) + of the expansion in Equation (1.1) correlates to the spatial resolution at the Earth surface by (*, - NPO(.) + (1.3) where (*, - is the minimum wavelength (or twice the pixel side length) of gravity field features that are resolved by the O(/) + O(.)0+ O(/) + 1 parameters Equation (1.1) contains the upward-continuation of the gravitational potential at the Earth s surface for U > and reflects the attenuation of the signal with altitude through the factor (U) 4 6.

As such the geoid is derived from the disturbing potential 7 applying %UXQVIRUPXOD 7 1 (2.1) γ where γ is 'normal'gravity on the surface of the ellipsoid. With γ 1 in spherical approximation, the geoid undulations (or geoid heights) can be computed from the spherical harmonic coefficients in Equation (1.2) by 1 ϕ 7 ϕ (2.2a) 2

On the geoid and in spherical approximation U the gravity disturbance then is expressed by ( F G FRV P + 6F G VLQ P) L M N II δ J ϕ O 3F G + + VLQϕ (2.3) The difference between gravity at a point 3 on the geoid and normal gravity at the corresponding point 4 on the ellipsoid is called JUDYLW\ DQRPDO\ 'J (Figure 2.3) and related to the disturbing potential by 7 J 7 (2.4) U U On the geoid this becomes (note: no degree 1 terms appear in Equation 2.)

If computed in terms of gravity disturbances or anomalies and gravity gradients, the higher frequency regional to local content is emphasised through the degree-dependent factors OO and OO respectively, whereas the potential 3

Vice versa, a gradiometer measuring gravity gradients is capable to better resolve detailed structures of the gravity field rather than the long wavelength part.

Recall that the spectral degree O is related to the spatial extension or wavelength of features in the gravity field according to Equation (1.3). Examples for difference amplitudes as a function of maximum degree l (successive accumulation of the curves in Figure 3.1) are given in Figure 3.2. Equations (3.1) again demonstrate that the higher degree terms, i.e. the shorter wavelengths in the signal spectra, are enhanced by factors proportional to degree O for gravity anomalies and disturbances and proportional to O for gravity gradients compared to the signals in the geoid and gravitational potential. )LJXUH 'LIIHUHQFH GHJUHH DPSOLWXGHV *$( 6 YV ( LQ WHUPV RI JHRLG XQGXODWLRQV UHG JUDYLW\ GLVWXUEDQFHV EOXH DQG JUDYLW\ DQRPDOLHV JUHHQ LQ PHWHU DQG PJDO UHVSHFWLYHO\ 7
