GRAVITY-ANOMALIES AND FLEXURE OF THE LITHOSPHERE AT MOUNTAIN RANGES

Abstract:

Model calculations suggest that the main contribution to the gravity couple in the Alps and Appalachians arises not from surface loads such as thrust sheets and nappes but from subsurface loads. In the case of the Himalayas the topography appears to be a sufficient load to explain the observed asymmetric gravity low. When subsurface loads do exist therefore, we would not expect a close correlation between mountain topographic relief and depth to the M discontinuity which instead is expected t...
