Quantitative interpretation of aeromagnetic data

Smellie, Donald William

Description

The present work is intended as a contribution to the setting up of a framework for the interpretation of total intensity aeromagnetic data. Although instrumentation for this purpose is in good order, little has been published related to the interpretation of data. Quantitative interpretation of magnetic data is only one aspect of the subject. A full appreciation of magnetic interpretation requires a knowledge of rock magnetism or the magnetic properties of rock, an aspect which will only...[Show more]

dc.description.abstractThe present work is intended as a contribution to the setting up of a framework for the interpretation of total intensity aeromagnetic data. Although instrumentation for this purpose is in good order, little has been published related to the interpretation of data. Quantitative interpretation of magnetic data is only one aspect of the subject. A full appreciation of magnetic interpretation requires a knowledge of rock magnetism or the magnetic properties of rock, an aspect which will only be touched on briefly in this work. The main stress is to be on the use of quantitative methods for the deduction of the shape and 9 where possible 9 the average magnetic polarization of the causative body or for the separation of magnetic effects of various types. Good interpretation also requires considerable geological background, and the integration of the geological and geophysical approaches.
