Abstract

An interpretation procedure is formulated using the Hilbert transform for analysing the gravity effect of (a) two-dimensional horizontal circular cylinder, (b) semi-infinite thin fault block, and (c) a geologic contact. In all three cases the abscissa of the point of intersection of the gravity anomaly curve or the horizontal derivative curve and its Hilbert transform yields directly the depth of the body. The proposed method is tested on theoretical models. Also, the method is applied to the field data of a geologic contact taken over the Himalayan foothills across the Brahmaputra valley.
