TITLE      = Some Geophysical Aspects of the Evolution and Structure of the
             Crust in Egypt

In 1980 the General Petroleum Company (GPC), Cairo, Egypt, published a set of 
Bouguer maps of Egypt on a 1:500,000 scale by compiling all available gravity 
data.  This is a two dimensional density model showing the crustal thickness 
and geometry from the Libyan Desert across the Eastern Desert and the Red Sea 
Mountains to the Red Sea.  The model is seismically constrained from 10 deep 
seismic sounding profiles performed in 1978 and 1981 by the Intitute of 
Geophysics, University of Hamburg, and the Helwan Institute of Astronomy and 
Geophysics.  Details about the seismic data are not available in this
