Gravity Disturbancies, Marussi Tensor, Invariants and Other Derivates of the Geopotential Represented by Global Gravity Field Model EGM 2008 and Suggested for Geo-applications in Various Regions of the Earth (full title) A new methodology and tools to compute the gravity disturbances, Marussi tensor, invariants of the gravity field, other functionals and functions of the geopotential (called here derivates), represented by the global gravity field model EGM 2008, are provided. Regional examples of computed quantities from the EGM 2008 are presented with suggestions of geomorphological and geodynamic interpretations as a motivation for further geo-applications. They are discussed main results obtained for selected regions of the Himalaya, Japan, Central Europe, Asia Minor, the impact craters Vredefort, Chicxulub and Popigai, and also for the southern part of the Caspian Sea and Ghawar oil fields in the Saudi Arabia.
