The variations of the gravitational acceleration resulting from the changes in the global hydrological model were determined based on the Global Land Data Assimilation System (GLDAS) model in the spatial resolution variant 0.
When modifying this theory, it is desirable that the new gravitational acceleration is derivable from a single potential [phi], where [phi] is arbitrary up to an additive constant.
These are determined based on the height differences and the data on gravitational acceleration.
Models 1 and 2 were tested at a 50g gravitational acceleration field, whereas Models 3 and 4 were tested at 63g.
Changes in measured values of gravitational acceleration are presented in Figure 6.
Determining that force involves only the masses, the separation, and G, representing a static gravitational acceleration.
15 factor refers to gravitational acceleration and roughly correlates to 6 on the Richter scale.
However, if the gravitational acceleration depends on the nature of bodies, there should be a non-null torque (L) of the gravitational forces (with gravitational acceleration G) and of the centrifugal forces (with centrifugal acceleration C) which would result from |Omega~(Al, Au).
So we expect a correlation between G and the gravitational acceleration g.
The device can detect minute amounts of X, Y, and Z-axis dynamic acceleration and outputs tilt and gravitational acceleration data simultaneously.
The uncertainty in this force is dependent upon the uncertainties in the measured values of the mass, gravitational acceleration, and the ratio of the air and weight densities, which are discussed respectively in Secs.
These studies consist of geodetic research providing quantitative data from GPS satellite measurements, observations of gravitational acceleration and comparison of precise levelling measurements.
