  author={M. Desa and Maram Venkata Ramana and T. Ramprasad},
Results obtained from compilation and reinterpretation of about 21,200 line km of bathymetry, magnetic and satellite gravity data between 10S to 10N latitudes and 75 to 90E longitudes south off Sri Lanka are presented here. Magnetic data and the synthetic seafloor spreading model reveal the presence of Mesozoic anomaly sequence M11 through M0 south of Sri Lanka. The oldest magnetic anomaly M11 (134Ma) occurs between 110 and 140 km away from the Sri Lankan coast. The seafloor created during the… CONTINUE READING
