REFERENCES: AUTHOR = Snyder and Barazangi YEAR = 86 FIGNUMBER = 5, south profile SOURCE = Tectonics, vol. 5, No. 3, Pages 361-373, June 1986 TITLE = Deep crustal structure and flexure of the Arabian Plate beneath the Zagros collisional mountain belt as inferred from gravity observations. The gravity data consist of 9,436 measurements obtained from the Defence Mapping Agency in St. Lois, Missouri. Gravity values are referenced to the international gravity Standarization Network of 1971 and geodetic Reference system 1967. The data distribution can be displayed with this menu since this is one of the coverages used to generate the Bouguer and Free Air grids. In order to display the data points, click on "Images/Grids ..." from the main menu and from the new poped up menu, click on "coverages used ..." under Bouguer gravity for example. Finally, select "zagros point data", and the data points will be displayed. Two gravity models were used in this publication: Models based on Bouguer and Isostatic anomalies and Fexure models. This particular profile is a two-dimensional Bouguer gravity model. Densities are assumed to be homogeneous throughout the bodies.
