The Arctic Gravity Project (ArcGP) is an international effort dedicated to the compilation of a public-domain gravity grid of the Arctic gravity field north of 64 N. The focus of the gravity grid will be the Arctic Ocean, Greenland, and the continental areas of North America and Russia north of 64 N. This international effort is being led by Rene Forsberg of Denmark and NGA of the USA, who are supported by a Special Working Group composed of members from ten different countries (USA, Canada, Sweden, Finland, England, Norway, Germany, Iceland, Russia, and France). The primary interest of the ArcGP is the compilation of state-of-the-art detailed free-air and bouguer anomaly grids that will be made available to the general public in the year 2000.
