Abstract:

Digitally recorded aeromagnetic data can be read directly by a computer, the readings converted to values in gammas, any erroneous readings eliminated, and the regional field due to the dipole nature of the geomagnetic field removed. The data may then be profiled on any map projection and scale. Also surface fits of various degree polynomials can be made to the original data and contoured by an X-Y plotter. Finally differences between various fitted surfaces can be contoured. Author
