Abstract:

The first purpose of this report is to document the computer programming of the gravimetric deflections from the vertical for a type III area. The type III area contains mountainous terrain with moderate to sharp gravity anomalies. The second purpose of this report is to compute vertical gravimetric deflection values on a 51 x 51 point grid with a 2.0 kilometer grid interval. The grid is centered in northern New Mexico at 106.5 degrees W, 25.75 degrees N, and the area is a type III area. The third purpose of this report is to show that the analytical continuation used by Moritz can be performed by use of the Fourier transforms. For large data sets in a gridded format, the use of a fast Fourier transform algorithm could lead to more efficient computer programming of the equations of Moritz.
