Investigated the regional geological structure of the territory within Cooper-Eromanga basins (Australia) and Earth satellite gravity data (altimetry) which produce interpretation of major structural elements that determine the overall gravity field. The analysis of relationships between anomalies and structural elements of the basins was conducted by using map of the modern relief and structural horizon maps of surfaces. The main structural horizons of this territory are Patchawarra, Cadna-Owie and Tirrawarra. As result of spatial-correlation analysis were researched the main trends anomaly of gravity field. The most intense anomalies of gravity field have mainly northeast direction, which are, associated with major trough structures. A quantitative assessment of density distribution within the lithosphere was carried out by gravity inversion.
