Abstract:

Three new methods are discussed for solving the direct problem of gravimetric surveying for three-dimensional geological masses of arbitrary form and dimensions. These methods provide a high accuracy and rate of computations and can be used by computers. Included are the following topics Tables of direct gravity effects for computing gravity anomalies of three-dimensional bodies of arbitrary form and dimensions with the aid of a square graticule, nomograms for computing the gravitational effect of geological strate by a series of parallel cross sections, and procedure for computing the gravitational effect of gently sloping masses by the condensation method.
