Hi Forum,(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Hopefully someone can help out with a reference here or point me in the right direction!

Say you have 3 geophysical datasets: aeromag, Bouguer gravity and pseudo-gravity (as derived from the aeromag). I understand how the pseudo-gravity is derived, but what extra benefit do you get from using the pseudo-gravity as opposed to the Bouguer gravity? The Bouguer gravity data will help you to define crustal scale structural trends in the data, but does the pseudo-gravity pick up anything extra that can't be seen from the standard gravity data, assuming everything is done at the same scale/resolution? Is the Bouguer gravity better to use in some situations and the pseudo-gravity better to use in other situations?

Thanks in advance!
