|GEOSAT 44: High-Accuracy, High-Resolution Gravity
|This satellite altimeter data base contains precise geoid and gravity anomaly profiles
which were constructed from the average of 44 repeat cycles of Geosat. The data are
contained in two files: (1) geo44asc.bin (987755 records) contains the ascending profiles
which run southeast to northwest between 72S and 72N, and (2) geo44des.bin (991313
records) contains all of the descending profiles. The data parameters in addition
to time and location are geoid height, gravity anomaly and uncertainty in gravity
anomaly. For additional information see geosat.txt in this directory.
