Trident Gravity Gradient Tripod
from Scintrex

The Trident is a light and portable levelling tripod for vertical gravity gradient measurements. Permitting the precise positioning of a CG-5 or CG-6 micro Gravity meter at 3 heights above ground level, the Trident provides a stable platform form which repeatable micro gravity measurements can be recorded.

The height of each level is fully adjustable within the limits of the 1.2m length of the upright poles. The most common configuration is to record a station at ground, at a height of at 0.6m and a height of 1.2m.
