An important possible constraint on a density model obtained from inversion of gravity data has been overlooked in the seminal paper by Green. The computed density model should be such that the corresponding total mass excess or deficit per unit length in a two-dimensional case, or total mass excess or deficit in a three-dimensional case, should be comparable to the value obtained by applying Gauss's theorem to the observed gravity anomaly data (Grant and West, 1965, p. 227–28 and p. 232).
