Title: Determination of the Free-Air Gravity anomalies over Brong-Ahafo Region of Ghana
Authors: Dziedzorm, Ziwu Felix
Issue Date: 14-Jul-2011
Abstract: Free-air gravity anomalies over Brong-Ahafo Region of Ghana on a regular 2.5×2.5 arc minute grid is determined from combined surface gravity and digital elevation model data using Simple Bouguer anomaly procedure and Gravity Reconstruction method of gridding. The Geodetic Reference System 1980 (GRS80) ellipsoid was used as the reference ellipsoid for computation of the normal gravities at the grid points. The results of this study shows that the residual free-air gravity anomalies over Brong- Ahafo Region range from -63.07 to -3.56 mGal, with the negative values indicating places where the normal gravity values are higher than the corresponding free-air values and that the ellipsoid is below the geoid surface.
