Adequate separation of regional-residual components from observed gravity anomaly is always a challenging task in gravity interpretation. Several techniques have been developed for effective regional-residual separation, however, no single approach can perfectly accomplish the job. In thiswork, a hybrid approach has been proposed with an objective to enhance the performance of Bi-dimensional Empirical Mode Decomposition (BEMD) in decomposing gravity anomaly by jointly employing low pass filter and BEMD. The paper discusses the efficacy of this hybrid approach in gravity anomaly separation from noisy synthetic and field data. Synthetic studies involving forward modelling of asymmetrically placed shallow and deeper spherical bodies with added Gaussian noises of different levels demonstrate that the proposed approach ismore efficient in separating the regional-residual components fromobserved gravity anomaly compared to the individual application of filtering or BEMD. It has an added advantage of suppressing the unwanted noises significantly. After successful test with synthetic data the proposed approach has been applied to field data and satisfactory results are obtained. Thus, the proposed hybrid approach ismore effective in delineating gravity signature related to complex near surface features even from noisy gravity data.
