The magnetic method is a versatile, relatively inexpensive, geophysical exploration technique. Magnetic data can be acquired on land or water, or in the air. Aeromagnetic survey, and deep water marine studies are commonly used as a reconnaissance tool for evaluating hydrocarbon prospects. Land-based or coastal water marine magnetic surveys are usually done for evaluating shallow geologic structures e.g., shallow mineral deposits in detail. Such surveys have also been used successfully in locating manmade features for example, in archeological prospecting. More recently, the focus of national attention on the hazardous waste problem has prompted routine use of magnetometers for locating repositories of buried drummed wastes. Locating and quantifying these materials is essential to any remediation effort, and magnetometer surveys can provide an extra measure of safety to those personnel involved in the clean-up activities.
