Abstract : A new anomaly degree variance model is developed by considering potential coefficient information to degree 20, and updated values of the point anomaly variance, the 1 degree block variance, and the 5 degrees block variance. This new model and several other models were used to develop closed expressions for the covariance and cross-covariance functions between gravity anomalies, geoid undulations (or height anomalies), and deflections of the vertical.
