Short summary
We estimate variations of the crustal thickness beneath the Nepal Himalayas based on tomographic inversion of regional earthquake data. The obtained variations of crustal thickness match fairly well with the free-air gravity anomalies and correlate with magnetic field. We propose that elevated magnetic values can be associated with more rigid segments of the incoming Indian crust which cause more compression in the thrust zone and lead to stronger crustal thickening.
