Abstract : The study of gravity in high elevations gained importance during the last years. It is necessary, especially in connection with checking airborne gravimetric surveys, not only to compute these gravity values from gravity measured on the earth's surface, but also to know the accuracy obtainable. A general theory of accuracy of these computations is sketched and numerical values given. The central conception is the covariance function which was introduced into gravimetry. After the theoretical foundations are summarized, some detailed investigations concerning different computational methods are given. (Author)
