Abstract : The report presents free air gravity values and computed free air anomalies obtained on an equatorial traverse from 09 degrees 00 minutes E to 37 degrees 56 minutes W. It is the second of a series of reports presenting the gravity data to be used in deriving a 'ground truth' calibration grid for comparison with topographical details of the world oceans obtained by a radar altimeter in an earth satellite scheduled to fly in 1974.
