Abstract

The earth's gravity field G * at a point P in the region surrounding the earth's surface is defined as the force acting on a unit mass concentrated at P. This is a force resulting from two components: (1) G1 due to the gravitational attraction of the earth's mass, and (2) G2 due to the earth's rotation.
