Instrument:
Shipboard gravimeter
Instrument:
Microgravimeter
  1. (1) Shipboard gravity meter
  2. The system consists of two main assemblies; the gyro-stabilized platform including the gravity sensor and the data handling & control system.
    Manufacturer: Micro-g LaCoste, Inc.
    Model: MGS-6
    Measuring range: 500,000 mGal
    Accuracy: 0.6 mGal
    Drift rate: < 3.0 mGal/month
    Installation: Gravity meter room
    Reference:"MGS-6 Marine Gravity System 6 User’s Manual", Micro-g LaCoste 2015
  3. (2) Portable gravity meter
  4. The portable gravity meter consists of two modules; the data acquisition/control module and the gravity sensor module. The gravity sensor is enclosed in a thermostatically controlled vacuum chamber. The portable gravity meter is used to calculate the absolute gravity of the port with reference to the gravity station of the Japan Gravity Standardization Net of the Geographical Survey Institute of Japan.
