Abstract [en]

Errors of estimated parameters in an adjustment process should be scaled according to the size of the estimated residuals or misclosures. After computing a quasigeoid (geoid), its biases and tilts, due to existence of systematic errors in the terrestrial data, are removed by fitting a corrective surface to the misclosures of the differences between the GNSS/levelling data and the quasi-geoid (geoid). Variance component estimation can be used to re-scale or calibrate the error of the GNSS/levelling data and the quasi-geoid (geoid) model. This paper uses this method to calibrate the errors of the recent quasi-geoid model, the GNSS and the normal heights of Sweden. Different stochastic models are investigated in this study and based on a 7-parameter corrective surface model and a three-variance component stochastic model, the calibrated error of the quasi-geoid and the normal heights are 6 mm and 5 mm, respectively and the re-scaled error of the GNSS heights is 18 mm.
