Summary

A simple method for the interpretation of second derivative gravity anomalies of an anticline is presented. The method utilises only three readily measurable distances, from the origin to the points of half maximum second derivative anomaly, zero anomaly and minimum second derivative anomaly. Charts for the computation of the various parameters are constructed.
