Multiplied all coefficients of EGM2008 by $\sqrt{2*degree+1}$, got

Especially for $C_{21}$ and $C_{22}$ the difference is still major.

To calculate the Earth gravity potential in JGM-3, the equation was used: $U_{har}=\frac{\mu}{r}[1+\sum_{i=2}^d\sum_{j=0}^o (\frac{R_{eq}}{r})^iP_{ij}(\sin\phi)(S_{ij}\sin{j\lambda}+C_{ij}\cos{j\lambda})]$,

As you see, the argument of Lejendre polynom $P_{ij}$ is $sin\phi$.

However, here for EGM2008 it's said to use $cos\phi$. Is it specific for EGM2008 model?
