Compute the minimum-amplitude downward continuation filter of Wieczorek and Phillips (1998).

Usage

wl = DownContFilterMA (l, half, r, d)

Returns

wl : float
The amplitude of the downward continuation filter.

Parameters

l : integer
The spherical harmonic degree.
half : integer
The spherical harmonic degree where the filter is equal to 0.5.
r : float
The reference radius of the gravitational field.
d : float
The radius of the surface to downward continue to.

Description

DownContFilterMA will calculate the downward continuation filter of Wieczorek and Phillips (1998; eq. 19) for a given spherical harmonic degree l. The input parameters include half, which is the degree where the filter is equal to 0.5, and r and d, which are the reference radius of the gravitational field and the radius of the surface to downward continue to, respectively.
