Full Tensor Gravity Gradiometry: An Overview

The use of Full Tensor Gravity Gradiometry, or FTG, is becoming increasingly common in the exploration industry. Before acquiring or utilising an FTG dataset it’s advantageous to understand what FTG is, what it is used for and how it is measured. This module covers an overview to these topics.

This module is separated into 3 parts:
Part 1: Looks at what gravity is and the difference between conventional gravity and gravity gradiometry, with an overview of tensors and vectors

Part 2: Considers the reasons for measuring FTG, including direct mapping and indirect mapping of targets, and regional mapping

Part 3: Looks at how we measure the gravity field, including ground gravity, conventional airborne gravity and gravity gradiometry
