MALO — MAss LOading computation software


The Earth as a whole responses to external forces as an elastic body. Changes in the mass of the atmosphere and hydrosphere cause crustal deformations that are of the order of magnitude 1cm. Deformations caused by loadings should be taken into account in a reduction of astronomical and space geodesy observations when the accuracy better than 2 nrad or 1 cm is required.

Software MALO contains a number of routines that establish the infrastructure for processing output of numerical models that describe mass changes and for computing mass loading deformations.
