We developed a spherical harmonic series that represents the gravitational potential and its gravity field due to a buried right vertical cylinder. This series can be used at far- and intermediate-regions, and is fast and accurate, using only a few terms. We compared the values of the fields acquired by this new spherical harmonic series, with ones computed by direct numerical integrations, using a fine-mesh structure for a vertical cylinder. Results of the calculations are shown and performances of the two different methods are compared. Faithfulness of the spherical harmonic series is tested with an inversion example. © ASEG 2015.
