Nowadays, an accurate gravity network, based on absolute gravity values determined by modern free-fall gravimeters, provides an important reference frame for the quality check and the transformation of historical data to a modern gravity frame.
The above information from the base station were needed, because the used gravimeter cannot determine the absolute gravity, but only the difference in their readings at two stations, which is proportional to the difference between the gravity values at the two stations.
