Geoid Models for Indian Territory

Authors(3) :-Puja Shrivastava, Prof. Laxman Sahoo, Dr. M. Stalin

Geoid modeling for India is a complex, exhaustive and continuous task because of its large area and tremendous varieties of surface. This paper reviews available geoid models for Indian Territory developed through geometric, gravimetric and hybrid methods for Northern, Eastern, Southern, and Western regions and presents a summary of further scope for the geoid development in India.
