With a view to contributing to the identification and characterization of the anomaly wavelengths associated with the main sources modeled in the present study (i.e., Moho and LAB), we calculated the 2D-averaged power spectrum of the complete Bouguer anomaly and of the upward continuations to different elevations (Fig.
