Abstract

Recurrence relations have been derived for truncation error coefficients of the extended Stokes' function and its partial derivatives required in the computation of the disturbing gravity vector at any elevation above the earth's surface. The corresponding formulae, the example of values of the truncation error coefficients for H=30.1 km and ψ0=30∘ and the estimations of truncation error are given in this article.
