The Gulf Coast salt domes found by gravity methods since the discovery of Sugarland are reviewed up to and including the recent discoveries.

Besides the better known torsion-balance method, the growing use of the pendulum and gravity meter characterize the last 2 years of gravity prospecting.

Regional surveys destined to reveal the general gravity grain of the Gulf Coast in relation to the isolated salt masses are steadily growing and emphasize the importance of gravity surveys in geophysical reconnaissance work.
