Abstract: A Bouguer gravity map is presented of the region around Kuala Lumpur. The dominant feature is a variation of c.40 milligals with a decrease from SW to NE at a rate of roughly 1 milligal/km. The trend of this variation is roughly parallel to that of the Main-Range Granite. When this regional variation is removed a number of mostly positive local anomalies of up to 7 milligals are revealed, mostly over areas of known limestone bedrock. The larger local anomalies are matched with 2-dimensional modelling.
