Abstract : The primary objective of this work was to demonstrate the physical accountability of gravity by establishing the relations between the variations in the observed gravitational field within the continental United States and variations in observable geologic and geophysical parameters. The correlations developed in this report represent input information which can be used, in addition to knowledge of the spatial relations of points at which gravity has been observed, to carry out evaluation, interpolation, and prediction of gravity. By use of these correlations, considerable improvement can be realized. (Author)
