Each three-dimensional body is specified by giving its shape and anomalous density at a number of successive depths. The method calculates the anomalous gravitational potential due to such bodies and then obtains the geoid height using Bruns' formula. The calculation utilizes the portion of the density model that lies in a hemisphere centered at the observation point. The method is designed for digital computation.--Modified journal abstract.
