Abstract:

The major environment Ultra Low Frequency ULF, magnetic noise sources observed on the airborne ANASQ-81V optically pumped magnetometer are electromagnetic micropulsatrons, geological structures and ocean wave noise. Experimental determinations of the amount of magnetic noise produced by ocean surface gravity waves were made. The authors current research designed to remove the wave noise and increase the probability of Magnetic Anomaly Detection MAD is summarized.
