Abstract : The calibration factor of LaCoste-Romberg surface-ship gravity meter S-9 was checked against a 1200 mgal range of land base stations along the West Coast of the United States. Previous checks at other base stations provided conflicting results as to the accuracy of this meter's calibration factor supplied by the manufacturers. Results of the West Coast base station checks provided a calibration factor which is within 0.1% of that provided by the manufacturers. A revised calibration table was calculated and is presented in this report for use with meter S-9. (Author)
