Edge detection and edge enhancement techniques play an important role in interpreting potential field data. There have been various edge detection applications to gravity data in order to determine the edges of subsurface structures in geophysics. The edge detection methods comprise analytic signal, total horizontal derivative (THDR), theta angle, tilt angle, hyperbolic of tilt angle (HTA), normalised total horizontal gradient (TDX) and normalised horizontal derivative (NTHD). In this study, wavelet transform method and boundary analysis techniques are applied both synthetic models and field data. A Bouguer gravity data set from city of Hatay (Turkey) and its surroundings is used for field data and results are compared.
