Bouguer gravity anomaly

Bouguer gravity anomaly

[bu̇′ger ′grav·əd·ē ə′näm·ə·lē]
(geophysics)
A value that corrects the observed gravity for latitude and elevation variations, as in the free-air gravity anomaly, plus the mass of material above some datum (usually sea level) within the earth and topography.

Finally, the program subtracted the earth model gravity from the observed gravity to give the complete Bouguer gravity anomaly (CBOG) for each station.
The regional Bouguer gravity anomaly reported by Ethier (2001) crosses north-striking surficial geological units obliquely, implying deeper level structures lie on a NNE to NE trend.
where [DELTA][g.sup.B] is the refined Bouguer gravity anomaly, and [g.sup.c] the gravitational attraction of isostatic compensation masses (see also Bjerhammar, 1962, Chap.
The regional correction was calculated from topography using Airy's model of crustal compensation and subtracted from the Bouguer gravity anomaly, which then produced an isostatic residual gravity map of the study area.
