Abstract

During the North Atlantic Seismic Project in 1972 possibilities occurred to establish some 130 complementary gravimeter stations in Vágar, Streymoy and SuSuroy. Because problems arose in connection with the stability of the temperature of the Worden Master Gravimeter employed, a special investigation with regard to cooling and heating of the gravity meter was undertaken. The Bouguer anomalies including topographic corrections are depicted at the maps and the isogal picture is discussed. It is concluded that the Faroe Islands are considered as one unit gravimetrically.
