Abstract
The question behind this research was whether the method of satellite gravimetry can be used to follow the geological units even in inaccessible places. The goal of this research is to verify if the new generation of satellite missions serve to identify the largest of the Earth's igneous provinces (Bertrand et al., 2013), known as CAMP (Central Atlantic Magmatic Province) in Northwest Africa . Besides the scientific reasons, a possible application is the exploration of mineral resources and the exploitation of geothermal energy. This is an igneous province (LIP Large Igneous Provinces) that extends throughout North and South America, the Atlantic Ocean, Europe a...
