Gravity Measurements in the Eastern Mediterranean

Abstract

During 1950 measurements of gravity at sea were made in H.M. Submarine Talent in the eastern Mediterranean. Forty-six stations were occupied in the neighbourhood of Malta and Pantelleria, seventy-three stations in the part of the basin east of a line from Cape Matapan to Benghazi and in the southern part of the Aegean sea, and six stations on two east-west lines between Malta and Crete. Measurements were also made in the harbours of Malta, Tunis, Famagusta and Candia and at six sea stations which had been occupied by previous observers. A critical discussion is given of the accuracy of the results, which are presented both in tabular form and as maps of isostatic anomalies. No attempt is made in this paper to interpret their significance.
