Gravity anomalies, flexure and the elastic thickness structure of the India-Eurasia collisional system

Abstract:

We have used Bouguer gravity anomaly and topography data to determine the equivalent elastic thickness of the lithosphere, Te in the region of the India-Eurasia collisional system. Comparison of observed and modelled gravity anomalies along 1-dimensional profiles suggest there are significant variations in Te along-strike of the Himalaya foreland. Estimates decrease from a high of 70 km in the central region to 30-50 km in the east and west. We have verified these inferences of spatial variat...
