Abstract:

In previous isostatic computations, the isostatic reduction of gravity data is made using an isostatic response function the response of the earths gravity field to a concentrated load on the earths surface derived for an assumed mechanism of compensation. In this report a method is given for the computation of this function directly from observational data, eliminating the need for assuming a compensation mechanism. Author
