Example text

In some recent investigations2,3 the possibility of applying the LSC approach as an inversion tool for the prediction of bathymetry in local and regional scales has been examined, by using marine gravity or gravity derived from altimeter data as the input observable data. The method used in these investigations was based on a two-layer model of the upper crust. The first layer was defined by the ocean bottom topography and the second one by the Moho interface, the discontinuity surface separating crust and mantle.
