A Fortran computer program was developed to reduce field results of gravimeter measurements to useful Bouguer gravity values. The program is able to reduce data that have been observed at widely varying times. Corrections have been made for (1) tide, (2) latitude, (3) instrument drift, (4) free air, and (5) Bouguer. Input to the program consists of observation times, original gravimeter readings and identification, location, and elevation of stations. Output consists of input data and corrected gravity values (the Bouguer anomaly). Contributions of each correction may also be printed. Plots showing station locations and corrected gravity values have been plotted in map form.
