µGal(microgal)

A microgal (µGal) is a unit of acceleration used primarily in the field of geophysics and geodesy. It is named after the scientist Galileo Galilei and is a derived unit of the "gal", which is a CGS (centimeter-gram-second) unit. 1 gal is equal to 1 centimeter per second squared (cm/s²), and a microgal is equal to one-millionth of a gal or 10^-6 gals. As a result, 1 µGal is equal to 10^-8 meters per second squared (m/s²).

In geophysics, the unit µGal is essential to measure extremely small variations in the Earth's gravitational field, often referred to as gravity anomalies. These small changes can be associated with changes in the densities of rocks or the shape and structure of the Earth. This kind of measurement is essential to understand geological structures, to monitor volcanoes, to estimate mass changes in glacial areas or to prospect for natural resources like oil and minerals.

In summary, a microgal (µGal) is a small unit of acceleration used to quantify and analyze small variations in the Earth's gravitational field in geophysics, geodesy, and related disciplines.

aGal(attogal)

An attogal (aGal) is a unit of acceleration, mainly used in geophysics and geodesy, to measure the gravitational field strength. It is derived from gal (Galileo), a non-SI unit initially introduced to express Earth's gravitational acceleration.

1 gal (Galileo) is equivalent to 1 centimeter per second squared (1 cm/s²). Attogal is a smaller unit in the Galileo system and is defined as one-quintillionth (10^(-18)) of the gal. So,

1 aGal (attogal) = 10^(-18) gal = 10^(-18) cm/s²

This extremely small unit of acceleration is used to represent variations in the Earth's gravitational field, as well as in precise measurements of gravity and related phenomena such as tidal forces or Earth's crust movements.
