AbstractThe results of all regional gravity measurements made by the Dominion Observatory in Nova Scotia, New Brunswick and Prince Edward Island are given, and the correlation of the Bouguer anomalies with major geological structures is discussed. It is shown that most of the anomalies may be related to the densities of known formations. In several cases, the depth extents of these formations are estimated from their gravitational effects. A rather detailed interpretation is made of the structure of the Carboniferous basin in the region of Moncton, New Brunswick.
