Summary

An equation to compute the gravity anomalies of two-dimensional (2-D) bodies with density contrast varying with depth (z axis) was developed by Murthy and Rao (1979). I develop an equation for computing the gravity anomalies of 2-D bodies with constant horizontal density gradient. By combining this equation with the equation of Murthy and Rao, I estimate the depth of the sedimentary basin which is adjacent to the master fault associated with the Rio Grande rift in New Mexico, where the density is assumed to decrease basinward from the fault (Cordell, 1979).
