This week Param, Maria and I went to the field to take more measurements. This time we did 10 measurements instead of the typical 4. With these measurements we hope to make a better model of the Bouguer plate. Right now we assume a plate that is infinitely long and of uniform density. But, with the measurements we took, we know that this is not the case. We measured every 5km so that we can try to make an accurate model.
We are also working on a better model for Earth-Tide corrections. The gravimeter is currently recording every 5 minutes for 4 days. This will give us a lot of data to work with so that we can make a better model for Earth-Tide corrections in our gravity measurements.
