The recently developed Gravity Anomaly Map of North America is the product of a year multinational effort to compile, critically edit, and merge gravity anomaly data on a continental and global scale (Gravity Anomaly Map Committee, ). Gravity anomaly map of North America Unknown Binding – Import, January 1, by Committee for the Gravity Anomaly Map of North America (Author) Author: Committee for the Gravity Anomaly Map of North America. Genre/Form: Maps: Material Type: Government publication, International government publication: Document Type: Map: All Authors / Contributors: Committee for the Gravity Anomaly Map of North America. Magnetic anomaly North American Magnetic Anomaly Map: Airborne measurement of the earth's magnetic field over all of North America provides gridded data describing the magnetic anomaly caused by variations in earth materials and structure.

  The values on this map are expressed in milligals, 1/th of a Gal (short for Galileo), which is the unity of gravity, equal to 1 cm/sec2. Positive anomalies (i.e. greater density than average. Compiled by the Committee for the Magnetic Anomaly Map of North America, this four sheet, 42" x 55", scale ,, map was created as part of the Geological Society of America‘s Decade of North American Geology (DNAG) project. Volume 2 (): History in the Making; The Evolution of the Decade of North American Geology Project; Continent Scale Map Series (scale ,,) Volume 1 (): Geologic Map of North America; Volume 2 (): Gravity Anomaly Map of North America; Volume 3 (): Magnetic Anomaly Map of North America. The gravity anomaly map of the Cauvery basin prepared using the Bouguer anomalies onshore (Verma et al., ) and the satellite-derived free-air anomalies offshore is presented in Fig. As can be seen, the map shows excellent correlation of various gravity highs and lows of the order of 30–40 mGal with the ridge-depression features.

Regional magnetic patterns and gravity anomalies_ Paleozoic basement rocks north and south of these gravity lows. The milligaI difference between the low- and high- gravity values probably represents, at least in part, an increased Base from U.S. Geological Survey Alaska Map E, Since the s, the USGS and its partners, the State Geological Surveys, have been producing high quality, standardized geologic maps of the Nation. Check out the National Geologic Map Database (NGMDB), which is the National archive of these maps and related geoscience reports. Aeromagnetic, gravity anomaly, and derivative maps of the Craig and Dixon Entrance 1°x3° quadrangles of southeastern Alaska. A simplified geologic map, raw gravity and magnetic data, with derivative products including depth-to-source and rock densities, with limited interpretations of the underlying geology, structures, and mineral resources.
