Statistical and tectonic trend analysis of the Bouguer gravity

Auther : A. TEALEB

Department of Gravimetry and Geodesy, National Research Institute of Astronomy and

Geophysics, Helwan, Egypt.

 

ABSTRACT

 

The main tectonic trends present in Egypt are statistically identified and their tectonic significance studied. A graphical-numerical technique and the method of autocovariance analysis were applied to the Bouguer anomalies and their residual fields.

 

Seven principal tectonic trends were identified at different levels ranging between shallow sediments, basement surface and deep crust. The tectonic trends detected in Egypt suggest that the tectonic regime of the area has been influenced by two stress fields acting during different geologic epochs. The older one was probably a result of interaction between the African and the European plates, and the younger related to Red Sea rifting.
