Abstract [en]

In mathematical modeling of the topographic and atmospheric potentials in spherical harmonics, the topographic heights can binomially be expanded a certain order, usually to the third order. Some studies have been done on the effect of each order on geoid and gravity anomaly. However similar study on the satellite gravity gradiometric data is missed yet. This paper will investigate this matter globally. It presents that the contribution of the second- and third-order topographic terms is within 0.08 E and 2 mE, respectively on satellite gravity gradiometric data at 250 km level. Also the contribution of these terms is within 0.5 mE and 0.08 mE for the atmospheric effect.
