Abstract : A computer program has been formulated for the computation of the three disturbing components of gravity. Though several methods were examined for this computation, the direct integration method was chosen since it does not require the knowledge of geoid undulation, as does the coating method. The gravity data may be given in five block sizes, 5 degree x 5 degree, 1 degree x 1 degree, and 30' x 30', 5' x 5', and 2.5' x 2.5' blocks. With this data set, the disturbance components may be computed at any elevation above 10 km. (Author)
