Análise e interpretação de dados gravimétricos nas porções terrestre e marítima do Brasil Meridional

Paula Lúcia Ferrucio da Rocha, Luiz Fernando Santana Braga


We have interpreted the Bouguer anomaly map from South Brazil and its adjoining oceanic areas, using the land data from the SAGP Project (1990), and the marine data derived from GEOSAT. With the aid of the vertical derivatives and the maximum horizontal gradientes of the Bouguer anomalies we have mapped the boundaries between the major lithospheric compartments, here characterized by their gravity signatures. Two dimensional gravity modelling with available geological constraints have also been performed aiming to estimate the crustal thicknesses within each individual compartment. We show that the gravity responses of the continental, transitional and oceanic lithospheres are well distinguished.
