hGal(hectogal)

A hGal (hectogal) is a unit of acceleration used primarily in geophysics and the measurement of the Earth's gravitational field. It stands for hecto-galileo or 100 galileos. A galileo, often abbreviated as Gal, is a non-SI unit of acceleration named after the Italian physicist Galileo Galilei. 1 Gal is equal to 1 centimeter per second squared (1 cm/s²).

So, 1 hGal (hectogal) is equal to 100 Gal, which translates to 100 cm/s² or 1 meter per second squared (1 m/s²). It is used to more conveniently express acceleration values related to gravity when analyzing the Earth's gravitational field or conducting geophysical studies.

cGal(centigal)

A centigal (cGal) is a unit of acceleration commonly used in geophysics and geodesy to measure gravitational acceleration or gravity field variations. The term "centigal" is derived from the prefix "centi-" meaning one-hundredth (1/100) and "gal" named in honor of the Italian scientist Galileo Galilei. One centigal (1 cGal) is equal to one-hundredth of a Gal (0.01 Gal), equivalent to 1/100th of 1 cm/s² or 0.01 cm/s² (0.0001 m/s²). It is a non-SI (International System of Units) unit but is commonly used for expressing small gravity field variations and gravitational anomalies on Earth.
