During the mid-1960s, shipborne gravity developed as a commercially important and lower-cost alternative to sea-bottom gravity. The tradeoff for lower cost has been lower resolution in both anomaly amplitude and wavelength. Since dynamic gravity was introduced, first on ships and later in aircraft, a lot of effort has gone into understanding the dynamic gravity signal and improving resolution so that the geologic signal in gravity is more clearly developed.
