Abstract : With financial support provided under the AFOSR sponsored Window-on-Science program, Dr Gary Tuck of the University of Queensland, Australia spent a two week tour at Ionospheric Modeling and Remote Sensing Branch, Phillips Laboratory in Hanscom AFB, MA for the purpose of carrying out preliminary discussions with Phillips Lab's gravity group personnel on use of the terrain correction methods. The report provides a scope of Dr Tuck's research in which he is intended to work together with Phillips Lab personnel during his continuing stay at Phillips laboratory this year and part of the next year. The two research areas discussed by Dr Tuck in this report are (1) detailed gravimetric surveying to locate underground structures and (2) the use of air-born gravity gradiometry to avoid oncoming terrain.
