The present and future space gravity missions will measure the long wavelengths of the gravity field with unprecedent accuracy. However the recovery of the smaller wavelengths, bellow 100 km, will continue to rely on the availability of other types of data.
During the last years, new techniques have been developed to derive gravity anomalies from data measured by various sensors. These include satellite and airborne altimeter data and airborne gravimetry (spring type and GPS/INS derived).
These types of data have different spectral and spatial resolutions. In this study, both aspects of data integration and data intercomparison have been analysed. Available terrestrial and marine gravity data were also considered.
The potential of each technique and the benefits of data integration for regional gravity field mapping have been discussed. Special relevance is given to the exploitation of data from strap-down sensors, by presenting details about data acquisition and processing methodologies.
The paper presents the results obtained in selected study areas and analyses the potential of such integrated data sets in different geo-applications.
