The lab is the only one in Egypt specializing in the field of gravity and its various applications in geodesy and applied geophysics. The Lab has staff experts in the field of detailed, precis and micro-gravity applications, the applications of the gravity in Geodesy and geodynamics and different applications of satellite gravimetry. Moreover, continues gravity observations and Earth tides is an important topic for our laboratory. Also, our lab is interested in tide gauge measurements and satellite altimetry for seawater rising and inland water monitoring. Three absolute gravity stations (Helwan, Aswan and Mersa Matruh) from the absolute gravity network of Egypt are located in the institute buildings, the main Absolute gravity station of Egypt is Helwan Observatory Absolute gravity station which is located in the main buildings of our institute and all are belong to our lab.
The lab has different kinds of relative gravimeters (Lacoste & Romberg models G 1043 and D 218, Scintrex CG5 and ZLS). Other two tide gravimeters ET16 and ET 18 (German instruments by scientific cooperation agreements) are running for continuous measurements and other Earth tidal study purposes.
