The Global Geodynamics Project

Project Description
The GGP Project ( is a long term
initiative in order to establish a world wide network of super conducting
gravimeter (SG) stations by the voluntary consolidation of unique observatories
using such devices. The first phase of the project ran from July 1997 to July
2003. The second phase continuing this project will last until 2007. The high
accuracy gravity data are used for study of global motions of the entire Earth as
well as for the estimation of local gravity effects caused by atmospheric pressure
and groundwater. By the start of high accurate satellite gravity missions CHAMP
and GNSS, the SG data got a new impact for the validation and calibration of these
