Description:
The area covered by this geoid estimated is -23 ° < lat < -15°, -70° < lon < -65° with a grid spacing of 1.5' x 1.5'. The computation is based on the remove-restore technique, using the high resolution digital terrain model SRTM90m for the topographic reduction and the EIGEN-CG01C geopotential model. The solution has been obtained in one step only over the whole area using the FFT estimation method.
