Practical computations take advantage of accurate measurements for geopotential numbers provided by differential gravimeters, and traditionally the mean gravity has been approximated using a simplified linear model.
Following this, advances included the (a-stable) relative spring gravimeters, free-fall measurements made by dropping macroscopic objects and using the methods of geometrical optics to sense motion, and finally, free-fall measurements made using optical interferometry.
Observations of gravitational acceleration with La Coste & Romberg (G model) and Scintrex CG-3M Autograv gravimeters have been carried out since 1992 (Barlik, Cacon, 2001).
