The results of the analysis of gravitational and magnetic fields of the Tersko-Caspian depression are introduced. The main feature of the potential fields of the region is the presence of high-gradient zones. Distributions of azimuths of gravity and magnetic lineaments testify to the coincidence of the basic maxima on histograms of directions of gradients. About the general nature of these zones caused fault tectonics.
