Possible application of the anomalous free-air vertical gradient to marine exploration


, : Possible application of the anomalous free-air vertical gradient to marine exploration. Geophysics 31(1): 260-263

It can be assumed that lithologic units of anomalous density below the sea floor may generate computable free-air vertical gravity gradients when vertical unit cylinder shapes or other mass forms are approximated. These anomalous gradients would pass undisturbed through sea water and could be measured over sufficiently large vertical intervals, using a suitable gravity meter. A technique for accomplishing this is proposed here; as suggested, it is restricted to the drilling locality, but it could be expanded into a more general technique with presently available instrumentation.
