The ellipsoidal Stokes problem is one of the basic boundary-value problems for the Laplace equation which arises in physical geodesy. Up to now, geodecists have treated this and related problems with high-order series expansions of spherical and spheroidal (ellipsoidal) harmonics. In view of increasing computational power and modern numerical techniques, boundary element methods have become more and more popular in the last decade. This article demonstrates and investigates the nullfield method for a class of Robin boundary-value problems. The ellipsoidal Stokes problem belongs to this class. An integral equation formulation is achieved, and existence and uniqueness conditions are attained in view of the Fredholm alternative. Explicit expressions for the eigenvalues and eigenfunctions for the boundary integral operator are provided.
