Airborne Gravity Survey

Airborne gravity gradiometry (AGG) surveys provide information regarding the mass distribution of the subsurface through the measurement of gravity vector spatial derivatives. The advantage of the airborne gravity gradiometry technique is consistent coverage in varied topography and rapid acquisition time relative to a Ground Gravity Survey.[1]
