dc.description.abstract Bathymetric and gravity data totalling 2000 line km on the continental margin off Goa and Mulki, west of India have been studied. The free-air gravity anomalies vary between -60 to 25 mgals with prominent NNW-SSE trends in the outer shelf region and ENE-WSW trends in the midshelf region. The subsurface extensions of the Prathap Ridge and shelf margin basin towards north and south were mapped. Two-dimensional model studies were carried out to infer the crustal structure. These studies revealed maximum thickness of 4 km. sediments over the shelf margin basin and the thickness of the crust thins out to 24 km towards offshore
