Gravity bases in the State of Kuwait

Auther : WARIS E. K. WARS1

Department of Geology, University of Kuwait, P.O. Box. 5969, Safat 13060. Kuwait

 

ABSTRACT

 

As part of a new programme of regional gravity measurements in the State of Kuwait, a new absolute gravity base has been established on the Khaldiya carnpus of the University of Kuwait. The absolute gravity value at this primary base has been determined by making a tie with the Hamburg P station using a G-type LaCoste and Romherg (LR) gravimeter. The IGSN7I gravity value at the new Kuwait base is 979,251.06 + 0.1 mgal.

 

An additional set of 37 LR observations has been made at stations in Kuwait City as well

as in surrounding desert areas, including a north-south line of bases. A network of 95 permanent bases with 15-20 km station spacing has been set up in the desert using a Worden gravimeter. This network includes many of the LR stations.
