Abstract : The efficiency of prediction of mean gravity anomalies for areas of 1 degree x 1 degree, 2 degree x 2 degree, 5 degree x 5 degree, and 10 degree x 10 degree from known mean anomalies is studied. The least standard prediction error is found to be about 1/2 (var) 1/2 where var is the variance of mean anomalies. The influence of the nearest neighbors is prevailing. The prediction from many known anomalies is about the same as from only a few known values. (Author)
