Abstract:

During the last several years much has been learned about the natural environmental problems that influence the operation of Magnetic Anomaly Detection MAD equipment. The purpose of this report is to pass this information on to those directly involved in MAD operations. The approach is non-mathematical and deals only with the basic principles involved in the detection of a small anomaly in the presence of natural environmental noise.
