Paper Abstract

At present, a complex of technical equipment and special technologies for the measurement of gravity fields in areas of water and difficult-to-access land locations (taiga, mountains, marshes, and so forth) has been created to solve geological and forecast-searching problems of oil, gas, and other minerals. The complex includes the shipboard gravimeter for non-stop measuring on a moving ship, the air-gravimeter for measuring from aircraft, and an on-land gravimeter with a remote control system for discrete measuring on the sea-floor and surface, on an outward suspension bracket of a helicopter, or on shipboard. Discrete distant measuring from helicopters and ships is held for surveys of high accuracy, as well as for supporting insurance of shipboard and air-gravimetric work.
