  • Autoregression;
  • Bouguer anomalies;
  • Interpolation and extrapolation;
  • Linear regression prediction;
  • Mean gravity anomalies


The prediction of mean gravity anomalies for areas of 1-by-1, 5-by-5, and 10-by-10 deg2 from mean anomalies of the neighboring areas is discussed. The use of regression of gravity with other geophysical information for prediction is outlined.
