Abstract. This paper is focused on the local gravity anomaly estimation from aerogravity data. Multiscale analysis based on the harmonic spherical wavelet transforms is applied while solving the problem. At the beginning coefficients of the gravity wavelet transform were estimated from the aerogravity data. Then the coefficients were refined using the Earth's global gravity field model. The results of the real aerogravity data processing are discussed.


Keywords: aerogravity, spherical wavelets, estimation.
