Abstract : During 1959-1962, an investigation was conducted of the deep structure of the earth's crust of the territory of Azerbaidzhan and of the tectonics of its oil-bearing regions on the basis of results of a quantitative interpretation of gravity anomalies. The gravity anomalies were interpreted with consideration of all the geological-geophysical data available on Azerbaidzhan and adjacent regions. On the basis of the results of the interpretation of regional gravity anomalies, sections of the earth's crust along seven profiles were plotted schematically, as well as structural schemes for the principal layers of the earth's crust.
