Abstract:

In July 1961, a survey of the total intensity of the geomagnetic field of an irregularly shaped area lying between latitudes 35 N and 40 N and longitudes 70 W and 76 W was conducted. The survey operations wore conducted aboard the USS PREVAIL AGS-20 utilizing a nuclear resonance magnetometer. This report describes the geomagnetic character of an extensive offshore area and its relation to bathymetric and available seismic data. The geological significance of some of the data, particularly an elongate anomaly occurring along the continental slope, is discussed.
