The third issue of Al’manac of Modem Metrology is a thematic one and it is dedicated to gravimetric and gradiometric measurements, development of the metrology base in this field, and solving its technical, organizational and legal issues. The contributions are based on papers presented in the scientific seminar “Contemporary state and prospects of space gravimetry and gradiometry” organized by VNIIFTRI and attended by specialists of institutes of the Russian Academy of Sciences, the Lomonosov Moscow State University, and industrial organizations active in the field of space geodesy and gravimetry.
The issues and suggestions raised in the articles will no doubt play a positive part in solving contemporary problems of geodesy, space gravimetry and gradiometry — a most important area of fundamental science.
