Abstract : Equations are described that may be used for the prediction of mean gravity anomalies in various size squares. A computer program is given and described that will predict a mean free-air anomaly from a localized Bouguer coefficient, and from a predicted Bouguer anomaly. In addition the predicted accuracy for the mean anomaly is given, along with predictions made at the square center. The input to the program consists of a tape containing known anomalies, a set of covariances and a set of quantities pertaining to square size, number of known points to use etc. Though the program is for any size square, practical applications suggest a maximum use of a 30 x 30 ft square.
