Seeking a seafloor magnetic signal from the Antarctic circumpolar current

Lilley, Frederick (Ted); White, A; Heinson, Graham; Procko, K


Motional electromagnetic induction by ocean currents is a basic phenomenon of geophysics, with application to the monitoring of ocean transport. One of Earth's strongest ocean currents is the Antarctic circumpolar current (ACC). This paper explores the magnetic signals that should be generated by the ACC, and reports an experiment in which a magnetometer recorded natural variations of Earth's magnetic field on the floor of the Southern ocean for some five months in 1996. Magnetometer records...[Show more]
