Abstract

This Report describes a project to determine absolute gravity values along a continuous profile within the Channel Tunnel service tunnel. The work was carried out in close collaboration with the Ordnance Survey of Great Britain (who were simultaneously undertaking a reciprocal heighting traverse) and with the Institute Géographique National (who undertook first order geodetic levelling).
