The Wavelet Transform as a new tool for spectral gravity field modeling is introduced. Its very useful localization properties are explored and some comparisons with classic Fourier transform are made in order to realize the superiority of the Wavelet transform in approximating and analyzing general, non-stationary gravity field signals. Finally, some important issues for further research are outlined.
