The team then compared the measurements with a high-resolution geoid reconstruction created using gravity data collected by satellites.
Research interests: gravity field and geoid modelling, terrestrial laser scanning.
In fact, Tony's first work in Australia was the geodetic survey and adjustment that established the control network and associated geoid over the launching range at Woomera.

Mean Sea Level Heights: Provides greater flexibility by including an option to utilize a geoid model for measuring heights, in addition to the existing ellipsoid model option.
0] of the local geoid that best fits local mean sea level at the Zero Tide Gauge Station, from which local vertical datum can be defined.
GOCE measures the gravity field and models the geoid with unprecedented accuracy to advance our knowledge of ocean circulation, which plays a crucial role in energy exchanges around the globe, sea-level change and Earth interior processes.
Since all altimetry data were collected in the GRS-80 height system, the surfaces were then normalized to a Bk77 height reference system, using a geoid undulation of 19.
In Geodesy, gravity anomalies are interpolated when computing geoid undulations or the quasi-geoid height anomalies.
Hotspots, polar wander, Mesozoic convection, and the geoid.
That becomes tricky because gravitational theory dictates that the altitude isn't measured relative to average sea level, but to the geoid, a hypothetical surface that approximates the shape and size of Earth.
