This report presents free air gravity values and computed free air anomalies obtained on an equatorial traverse from 09°00'E. to 37°56'W. It is the second of a series of reports presenting the gravity data to be used in deriving a "ground truth" calibration grid for comparison with topographical details of the world oceans obtained by a radar altimeter in an earth satellite scheduled to fly in 1974. A previous report (WHOI Technical Report #71-68) gave similar values taken on a traverse along the 150°W. meridian from 62.9°S. to 57.5° N.
