Relative gravity data

There is a ongoing project of measurement of ~200 relative gravity points anchored to the absolute ones.

A first reconnaissance was performed in September 2014 to determine the location of the future campaign measurements (mission J. Hinderer, J.D. Bernard)


  • Scientific rationale of the project as it was submitted to CNRS in 2012
  • Preliminary KML map of the foreseen array of relative gravity measurements

Absolute gravity data

A campaign of absolute gravity measurements was carried out from November 25, 2013 to December 5, 2013.

Five absolute points were observed at Patras, Nafpaktos, Panormo, Temeni and Chelmos (see map).

Near each absolute point an auxiliary point was established and connected to the absolute one for easy re-occupation in the future.

The points Temeni and Chelmos were established so as to constitute a calibration base (~1600m of difference of elevation) measurable in less than four hours (good road and time needed for the loop and measurements with relative gravimetre at the points).
