To this day, no simple unifying explanation has emerged to account for these highs. Variously modeled by mantle doming, crustal thinning, dense crust, basement rises, postbreakup sediment depocenters, and topographic effects, these anomalies epitomize nonuniqueness in geophysical inversion. It seems unlikely that all the high…
