Gravity and Magnetic studies for Geodynamics and Resources Exploration

Continuous wavelet transform of gravity and magnetic data to estimate
sub-basalt sediment thickness

Fig. Continuous Wavelet Transform of the magnetic data is found more responsive to the thickness of the basalt and gravity data relates mostly to the bottom of the sediment. The differences in two allow us to map thickness of sediment. The estimates obtained with the Continuous Wavelet Transform technique can play an important role in constructing initial model

Developing Insight into interaction between Mantle Processes and Crustal Tectonics:
Gravity Perspective

Fig Lithospheric model and observed and calculated response along W-E across Dharwar craton. Figs (a–(d), continuous lines correspond to calculated response of the initial model and dots with uncertainty bars correspond to measured data. blue line and symbols corresponds to free-air gravity anomalies, green ones to Bouguer anomalies.
