Notes
The gravity map of the Baltazor KGRA (Fig. 2) shows a gravity low within the valley area that presumably is related to low-density Cenozoic sediments. The steep gravity gradient along the east side of the valley suggests a north-trending normal fault. The thickness of low-density fill is estimated to be about 300 m in the southwestern part of the KGRA and perhaps 150 m in the hot spring area. The gravity data indicate that the sediments underlying the valleys are not thick enough to be an important hot water reservoir or major thermal blanket.
