Gravity method is important tool for delineating structural elements which dissects the area of study. The gravity tool in the present study is applied on two studied areas. The first area is located at the northeastern part of Greater Cairo, and the second area is located at the northwestern part of Sinai, Egypt. The result of interpretation for gravity data for the first area indicates that there are many directions for fault elements of NE-SW parallel to Gulf of Aqaba and NE-SE parallel to Gulf of Suez and, also, the E-W trend parallel to the trend of Mediterranean Sea. The result of interpretation of the second area indicates different fault elements of different direction such as NW-SE trend parallel to trend Gulf of Suez, NE-SW is parallel to Gulf of Aqaba and E-W trend parallel to the trend of Mediterranean Sea.
