The use of finite elements in physical geodesy by
Peter Meissl(
Book
)
7 editions published in 1981 in English and held by 15 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Currently used methods of computational physical geodesy are compared with respect to their efficiency during production runs on a computer. These methods include: (1) Least Squares adjustment with respect to spherical harmonics; (2) Surface layers, buried masses and related methods; (3) Least squares collocation; (4) Representation of the potential by spline functions; and (5) Explicit integral formulas. As an alternative, the feasibility of applying the finite element method to the fundamental problems of physical geodesy is investigated. The methods listed under (1)(4) can be dramatically speeded up if the distribution of data and weights satisfies certain symmetryrequirements which are rather stringent. Method (5) relies altogether on a special type and distribution of data. In the absence of data homogeneity and regularity, the finite element method is asymptotically superior with respect to computational efficiency. Let N denote the number of parameters necessary to describe the variation of the potential on the reference surface. The computational effort associated with methods (1)(4) grows proportional to N cubed. That one resulting from finite elements grows proportional to N to the 3/2 power. The constants of proportionality are, however, unfavorable for the finite element method. Hence its superiority comes through only for large values of N, which, in case of a global solution, corresponds to data averaged over 2 deg x 2 deg blocks

Preparations for the numerical evaluation of second order Molodenskytype formulas by
Peter Meissl(
Book
)
3 editions published in 1971 in English and held by 7 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
A set of formulas proposed by Moritz and constituting a second order solution of Molodensky's problem has been transformed in a way that the resulting formulas are numerically tractable. The difficulty in the original formulas was the occurrence of singular integrals. Their regularization introduces derivatives of gravity anomalies and terrain heights and necessitates a numerical differentiation procedure. Spline function interpolation has been chosen to deal with this. The existing truncation theory has been extended to cover more sophisticated truncation procedures as well as a sucdession of heavier and heavier smoothed versions of the integrand

A study of covariance functions related to the earth's disturbing potential by
Peter Meissl(
Book
)
6 editions published in 1971 in English and held by 7 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The following quantities are considered: geoidal undulations, gravity anomalies, deflections of the vertical, a fictitious surface density, the vertical gradient of gravity anomalies. These quantities are interrelated by linear operators having the spherical harmonics as eigenfunctions. If the covariance of one of these quantities is specified, that of the others can be computed. Thereby rigorous bounds for the ratios of the different variances can be established. Though the earth's disturbing potential can be represented by any of the above quantities, there are differences in the stability of the resulting solutions. Attention is focused on potentials obtained from a combination of satellite information and gravimetry. In that case the introduced quantities are considered as residuals with respect to a geoid resulting from the adjusted lower degree harmonic coefficients. It is shown that the covariance of any one of the residual quantities tends to have certain theoretical properties. These are a predetermined number of zeros as well as negative correlation at certain predetermined distances. A comparison has been performed between the gravity anomaly residuals with respect to a low order geoid and mean 5(o) degree x 5 degree block anomalies having uncorrelated errors. Compared are the resulting errors in geoidal undulations and deflections of the vertical. (Author)

On the linearization of the geodetic boundary value problem by
Peter Meissl(
Book
)
5 editions published in 1971 in English and held by 7 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The geodetic boundary value problem consists in determining an unknown closed surface from the boundary values of an external potential and its gradient. A rigorous mathematical formulation of this problem is given leading to a system of nonlinear integrodifferential equations. The formalism of differentiation in function spaces is applied yielding a linearized version which involves no further neglections and approximations. Tensor calculus is used in linearizing the various differential geometric quantities. The results are specialized to a linearization with respect to the equipotential sphere in which case the formulas of Stokes and Vening Meinesz are simultaneously obtained. (Author)

Probabilistic error analysis of airborne gravimetry by
Peter Meissl(
Book
)
4 editions published in 1970 in English and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
An error analysis based on second order stochastic process theory is performed for airborne gravimetry. Only gravimetry in the traditional sense is considered as opposed to gravitygradient methods. Stochastic error models are developed and computer programs for the final formulas have been written. Sample computations indicate that gravity averages over about 100 km may be seriously deviation from the optimal filter due to lack of knowledge about the medium freuquent portion of the power spectra of gravity variation and noise.
