Grace Signal Filtering as a Means of Determining Equivalent Water Thickness in Poland
Divisions of PAS
<jats:title>Abstract</jats:title><jats:p>In the paper an Equivalent Water Thickness (EWT) determination as a way of observing gravity variations is described. Since raw data acquired directly from Gravity Recovery and Climate Experiment - GRACE satellites is unsuitable for analysis due to stripes occurrence, a filtering algorithm must be used. In this paper, authors are testing two isotropic (Gauss, CNES/GRGS) filters and two anisotropic filters (Wiener- -Kolomogorov, ANS). Correlation, amplitude ratio, and modification were determined as well as maps were generated.</jats:p>
