Abstract

We present a method of analysis involving ellipse-specific fitting of sinusoidally coupled data from two gravimeters in a gradiometer configuration. This method permits rapid extraction of induced gradient phase shifts in the presence of common-mode vibrational phase noise. Gravity gradients can be accurately measured in the presence of large vibrational accelerations.
