Abstract : Gravimetric measurements along three profiles were taken on the Monzhukly structure. A weak gravity minimum was noted in the crest part of the Monzhukly fold. I. G. Modoviskiy hypothetically explained its nature by the presence of screened gas and oil deposits in the northern part of the block of the fold. A detailed gravimetric survey was conducted for the determination of this minimum. This detailed survey made it possible to outline more precisely the general relative gravity maximum, corresponding to the structure, and to separate against its background a relative gravitational minimum. A comparison between the data of the gravimetric survey and the geological map distinctly shows the confinement of the minimum to the northern block of the fold. In the Monzhukly region, the given minimum could be caused by the influence of the terrain relief not being sufficiently taken into account, by errors in the determination of the Bouguer correction, by the presence of oil and gas deposits in the interior part of the fold, by the lithologic-structural characteristic of the fold. The paper discusses the above possibilities and explanations, with the conclusions drawn from the gravimetric and geologic studies. (Author)
