I found an answer to my question in "Submersions and preimages of sets of measure zero" (Siberian Mathematical Journal 28:153163), S.P. Ponomarev proves as Theorem 1 that if ??R^m is open and g?C^r (?,R^n ) where r ? m?n+1 then g^{?1} preserves Lebesgue measure 0 sets if and only if g is almost everywhere a submersion (i.e., the Jacobian derivative g ? has rank n almost everywhere).
Thank you very much for your attention. My Best Regards, Maury Barbato
