This self-contained monograph gives a thorough introduction to the theory of gravity which is used as the basis for developing applications in exploration and geodesy. In addition, a survey of gravity instrumentation is given, with emphasis on the theory of underlying these instruments. The book finishes with an exposition of forward modeling and inverston, again emphasizing fundamental principles. It surveys gravity instrumentation with emphasis on the theory of why certain instrumentation is used. It presents thorough developments of the theory of gravity to aid in creating applications in exploration and geodesy. It emphasizes the fundamental principles of forward modeling and inversion in the gravitational method.
