Abstract:

This Russian textbook provides a sufficiently complete and systematic illumination of physico-geologic and mathematical aspect of complex problem of interpretation of gravity anomalies. The rational methods of localization of anomalies are examined in detail. All methods of interpreting gravity anomalies are described which have found successful application in practice. Also given are ideas of some new methods of the interpretation of gravity anomalies, the prospects for further development and industrial testing. Numerous practical examples to interpretation are given. Partial Contents Bases of gravitational field theory Physico-geologic bases of gravitational prospecting Principles of geologic interpretation of gravity anomalies Conversions and calculations of anomalies Interpretation of gravity anomalies for bodies of correct geometric form and for bodies of arbitrary form Geologic interpretation of the results of regional gravitational photographing Searches and prospecting of oil- and gas- bearing structures and of deposits of ore and nonmetalliferous useful minerals. edc
