Shallow Crustal Residual (Isostatic) Gravity Anomaly for the Great Basin

Shallow Crustal Residual (Isostatic) Gravity Anomaly for the Great Basin. This is a shallow crustal residual calculated by removing broad regional anomaly patterns without regard to source. It emphasizes density changes in the upper few kilometers of the crust, and is best for showing patterns. For details, see the geophysics web site at http: HTTP:// For geologic, mineral, or geothermal exploration. Data sources include: National Geodetic Survey (NGS) 1999 gravity database from NGDC Gravity Data 1999 CD-ROM; USGS DDS-42 Gravity Map of Nevada Ponce Nevada 1997; Western Nevada surveys compiled by Oppliger 2002.
