Abstract : Terminology, concepts, discoveries and events lending to an understanding of classical and modern theories of gravimetric geodesy are discussed. Various correction terms to the gravity anomaly and some alternative computational procedures are noted. A 6 degree by 6 degree anomaly fields, which is representative of a mountainous area, is established using available gravity and elevation data and Rapp's prediction program. The Deflection of the Vertical computation procedures are discussed and a recommended approach is given using a modified Fischer technique. (Modified author abstract)
