The frequency domain assembles gravity potential field information
into a more meaningful form then the spacial domain. The gravity
potential field becomes mathematically well behaved, allowing, ideally,
an exact expression for the interpretation procedures of vertical
continuation and derivatives; and the formulation of criteria to
examine previously proposed interpretation methods of this class.
Moreover, approximations, which are an inevitable component of
interpretation, can be more clearly examined. Using the frequency domain it is shown that a discrete system of point masses, judiciously chosen, adequately synthesize any gravity field. The proposed
"Equivalent Source Technique" results in the projection of irregularly
spaced data on rough topography, onto a regularly gridded horizontal
plane. It also allows vertical continuation of the potential field
and the effective removal of the regional from the Bouguer Anomaly.
