The residuals showing the deviation δ(mg/mi) for tungsten and aluminum/brass, Eq. (3), obtained by combining the residuals of the radial acceleration of the three satellites LARES, LAGEOS and LAGEOS 2. The variations over the mean are mainly due to the uncertainties in the variations of the Earth gravity field from spherical symmetry, i.e. to the uncertainties in the Earth spherical harmonics.
