Geol 454 Environmental and Exploration Geophysics I Gravity Problem Set 3 Will have opportunities to discuss Thursday and next Tuesday Due date – Nov. 17 th ) 3. What is the radius of the smallest equidimensional void (e.g. chamber in a cave) that can be detected by a gravity survey for which the Bouguer gravity values have an accuracy of 0.05 mGals? Assume the voids are formed in limestone (density 2.7 gm/cm 3 ) and that void centers are never closer to the surface than 100m. (Problem 6.5 from Burger et al.) 4. The curve in the following diagram represents a traverse across the center of a roughly equidimensional (i.e. roughly spherically shaped) ore body. The anomaly due to the ore body is obscured by a strong regional anomaly. Remove the regional anomaly and then evaluate the anomaly due to the ore body (i.e. estimate its depth and approximate
