Where gravity data are insufficient for geodetic purposes and actual observations are not practical, nonconventional methods must be used. This paper proposes several geophysical approaches toward partial solution of the problem. The utilization of geologic, seismic, crustal, and magnetic information in a gravimetrically unsurveyed area will provide an approximate anomaly which can either stand alone or be used in conjunction with statistical methods.
