The various gravimetric studies carried out under the University of Wisconsin-Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution gravimetric program have shown that there are several points of weakness in the international program. These can be summarized as pertaining to instrumentation, base sites, observational procedures, calibration standardization, data reduction procedure, and special studies. Until these various topics have been dealt with in a satisfactory manner, there is likely to be considerable uncertainty in using international gravimetric measurements for various geodetic and geophysical studies.
