Abstract

In this paper with the method considering the correlation coefficients the order of regional field could be determined.
This method can be used for both Bouguer and residual anomalies.
Capability of this method is tested in the case of small models which have not been considered in the main paper.
Depth estimation is one of the most important aspects in the method.
