A new method for calculating the gravity anomalies due to mass distributions of finite extent and simple geometrical form has been developed. The principle of the method is the construction, in a plane, of curves which represent the boundaries of the body, such that the gravity effect is directly proportional to the area enclosed by such curves. The advantage of this method for bodies of considerable extent is emphasized. This approach is more rapid than that of the sector or graticule diagrams commonly employed.
