Gravity Data for California and Southern Nevada

Metadata Updated: February 8, 2018

The gravity data (88,514 records) were compiled largely from a state-wide regional gravity study program organized by the California Division of Mines and Geology in cooperation with the U.S. Geological Survey in Menlo Park, California. The data base was received in February 1983. Principal gravity parameters include Free-air Anomalies and Simple Bouguer Anomalies (no terrain correction applied). The observed gravity values are referenced to the International Gravity Standardization Net 1971 (IGSN 71). The gravity anomaly computation uses the Geodetic Reference System 1967 (GRS 67) theoretical gravity formula. The data are randomly distributed within the boundaries of California with a few stations in Southern Nevada.
