We estimate the elastic thickness of a continental lithosphere by using two approaches that combine the Vening Meinesz-Moritz (VMM) regional isostatic principle with isostatic flexure models formulated based on solving flexural differential equations for a thin elastic shell with and without considering a shell curvature. To model the response of the lithosphere on a load more realistically, we also consider lithospheric density heterogeneities. Resulting expressions describe a functional… Expand
