Summary
Abstract: EGM96 is a geopotential model of the Earth consisting of spherical harmonic
coefficients complete to degree and order 360. It is a composite solution,
consisting of: (1) a combination solution to degree and order 70; (2) a block
diagonal solution from degree 71 to 359; and (3) the quadrature solution at
degree 360. This model, just completed, is the result of a collaboration
between the National ... View entire text
