Abstract : Gravity data from Ralston Valley, Nevada, were studied for the purpose of making a geological interpretation which includes estimates of the overall shape of the structural basin, the thickness of alluvial fill, and the location of concealed faults. These estimates are expected to be useful in support of fault studies, in modeling dynamic ground motion in response to nuclear detonations, and in evaluating groundwater regimes. (Author)
