Bouguer gravity in northeastern Georgia: A buried suture, a surface suture, and granites

Basic Information
Author: Dainty, A.M. and Frazier, J.E.
Description:A grayscale map of contoured bouguer gravity values in northeastern Georgia. Contour interval is 4 milligals. A Bouguer gravity map of an area of northeastern Georgia encompassing parts of the Inner Piedmont, Charlotte belt, and Carolina Slate belt has been constructed from gravity stations spaced ?2 km apart. Anomalies in the Charlotte Carolina Slate belts are due to metamorphosed mafic rocks in the upper crust (depth extent <5 km, positive anomalies) and unmetamorphosed Alleghenian granites that extend to depths of as much as 16 km and produce negative anomalies.
