Box 14155- 6466, Tehran, IranJournal Article20210301The high-degree ellipsoidal Stokes integral (Ardestani and Martinec, 2003a) is used to compute the geoidal heights over a territory in Iran. To compute the low-degree part of the geoidal heights a global geopotential model (EGM96) is used and for the high-degree part, the solution of the ellipsoidal Stokes boundary-value problem (BVP) in the form of surface integral is applied.
Therefore the geoidal heights con be calculated for a part of Iranian territory where the data is available.The high-degree ellipsoidal Stokes integral (Ardestani and Martinec, 2003a) is used to compute the geoidal heights over a territory in Iran.
