Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

141 Scopus citations


A random gravitational force can be generated by seismic noise, by atmospheric acoustic noise, and by moving massive bodies. An estimate of the gravitational power spectrum at a point on the Earth is given. Such a force is an important source of noise in an interferometric gravitational wave antenna below f=10 Hz.
