  • Abstract The new gravity and magnetic data recorded along a profile in the Sikkim, NE Himalaya are combined with the existing data from Tibet, Bangladesh and India, to delineate the crustal structure in this part of Himalaya. Modelling of gravity data, constrained from seismic results suggests that long wavelength gravity anomalies arise due to variations in the depth of Moho (36 to 74 km), which are caused by flexed lithosphere of effective elastic thickness of ∼ 50 ± 10 km.
