Table 2 – Gravity Surveys in Michigan  

This table lists information about the individual gravity surveys, where known, such as the area, the survey investigator or organization, the date collected, the National Geospatial and Imaging Agency (NGA) survey code, and the number of stations within Michigan used from each survey. The code DMAH refers to the Defense Mapping Agency (now NGA).
