E-Book on Aeromagnetic Surveys: Principles, Practice and Interpretation Now Available

Authoritative guide introduces the principles of airborne magnetometers, and explains how survey data is processed to generate maps and images

July 24, 2009 - Geoscience students and geologists now have a useful guide for learning the theory and practice of aeromagnetic surveying.

An e-book on Aeromagnetic Surveys: Principles, Practice and Interpretation, authored by Colin Reeves of Earthworks and published by Geosoft, is now available.

This new e-book provides a useful guide for non-specialists looking to gain a better understanding of aeromagnetic surveying.

The importance of the aeromagnetic survey as a reconnaissance tool is growing as exploration success becomes increasingly reliant on finding buried deposits with no surface expression. A grasp of how the method works and the results it generates is essential for any geoscientist involved in uncovering the next generation of oil, gas and mineral deposits.

Aeromagnetic Surveys: Principles, Practice and Interpretation unravels the theory and practice of aeromagnetic surveying from basic physical concepts to interpretation of results. This comprehensive document explains the principles and practices without going into the daunting details of mathematically deriving the theory.

Author Colin Reeves pulls together 25 years of research and knowledge to provide an authoritative guide that describes the way the earth’s magnetic field interacts with crustal rocks to produce anomalies, introduces the principles of airborne magnetometers, and explains how survey data is processed to generate maps and images.

Using illustrative figures, the book explains the qualitative and quantitative interpretation of anomalies and anomaly patterns in the context of pre-existing geological knowledge. The electronic format will allow for updates that keep pace with rapidly evolving aeromagnetic technology.

The text will prove useful to students in the final years of their education who are planning a career in the resource sector and to working geoscientists that lack a grounding in potential field geophysics.

The e-book is available as a free download from Geosoft at www.geosoft.com/knowledge .
