Abstract : A summary catalogue of gravimetric points determined in Antarctica before 1 January 1962 has been compiled at the Aerogravimetry Laboratory of the Institute of Terrestrial Physics (Soviet Academy of Sciences) on the basis of Sparkman's g-value for Mirnyy, main support base of Soviet expeditions in Antarctica. The catalogue was compiled from the data of the countries participating in the Antarctic gravimetric research program, and these data have formed the basis for gravimetric maps of Antarctica.
