Existing techniques of deconvolution of gravity anomalies are principally based on upward and downward continuation of measured fields. It can be shown that a unique set of linear filters, depending only on geometrical parameters, relates density distribution at a given depth to gravity measured on the surface. A method to compute the filter coefficients is developed. Very accurate reconstitution of theoretical models of intricate shape, prove the validity of the linear relationship. One of these sets of linear filters is applied to a field case of underground quarries.
