Absolute Gravity

The value that denotes the density or specific gravity of a fluid at standard conditions; for gases, these conditions are standard atmospheric pressure (760 mmHg) at 0º C.

another aim is to develop a methodology for the determination of seasonal changes in gravity acceleration (mainly on the basis of experimentally verified hydrological influences) and to create a methodology for uniform processing of absolute gravity measurements (including both existing and newly discovered instrument repairs and local influence of the environment).

To convert these differences or relative gravities into absolute gravity values, one station at least is needed, called the gravity base station, where the absolute gravity field was already determined earlier by tying it to the national network.
