Mineral Resources, Jiddah, Kingdom of Saudi Arabia Anomalies caused by isostatic compensation are mostpronounced in the western part of the area due to the crustal thinning at the Red Sea rift zone.

A regional isostatic gravity field was removed from the Bouguer gravity anomaly by assuming an Airy–Heiskanen model for isostatic compensation of topographic loads (Simpson et al).

The isostatic modeling represents one of the most useful “geological” reduction methods of the gravity field. With the isostatic correction, it is possible to remove a significant part of the effect of deep density heterogeneity, which dominates in the Bouguer gravity anomalies.

Although there exist several isostatic compensation schemes, it is usually supposed that a choice of the model   The isostatic gravity anomaly field of southwestern Saudi Arabia and its interpretation by I/ M.

Oluma and Zewuge, ). In geophysics, the main three anomalies, i.e. the FA anomaly, Bouguer anomaly (BA), and isostatic anomaly (ISA), are distinguished in order to define the gravity field in terms of the height of the observations (e.g., Naudy and Neumann,LaFehr,Li and Götze,Hackney and Featherstone, ; and many others).

The compilation provides a ?q=&filter=tags=gravitational+field+(earth). A large variation in elevation and gravity anomaly prevails from the Red Sea coast to the interior of the Arabian Shield (AS) across the Asir Igneous Province (AIP); The Asir Mountain (AM) is developed on AIP.

Here the elevation varies from 45 - m, corresponding changes in F.A. are from –30 to + mgal and B.A. from +22 to – ://  It is as if some process has caused inelastic flow or ‘freezing’ of the solid rock. Thus, after modification, the central area of the crater becomes super-isostatic.

A large positive free-air gravity anomaly becomes locked in, probably because of an uplifted Moho and upper mantle that is locked into place. These are called mascons. 42Effective elastic thickness (EET) of the lithosphere is the thickness of a uniform elastic layer that would respond to applied loads in the same way as the heterogeneous lithospheric plate.

EET primarily depends on thermal state and structure of the lithosphere [e.g., Burov and Diament, ]; therefore, this parameter can be directly used to
