A surface ship gravity meter NIPRORI-1 which was built in 1980 was tested on board the icebreaker FUJI during her cruise around the Japanese Islands from September to October 1980. This test has verified that performance of the new gravity meter is satisfactory as a device to be used for the measurement in the Antarctic region.
