Vinti's Surface Density as a Means of Representing the Earth's Disturbance Potential

Harijono Djojodihardjo

Abstract. Vinti's method of representing the potential of the earth in two parts, with the first part represented by spheroidal potential and the second part being the earth disturbance potential, is outlined. The earth's disturbance potential is then represented as a surface distribution σ of mass density of variable sign over a sphere S just clearing the earth. The feasibility of the method is evaluated by calculating the distribution of o from satellite determination of the harmonic coefficients.
