Applications Manual for Portable Magnetometers

Author(s): Sheldon Breiner

Year: 1999


This Manual is intended for use as a general guide for a number of very diverse applications of portable magnetometers, especially the total field proton (nuclear precession) magnetometers. The diversity of applications and the general complexity of magnetic field measurements limits the depth to which any one subject can be covered, but further information, if desired, can be obtained through the author or from any of the references cited.

Among the applications for which this Manual is written are mineral and petroleum exploration, geological mapping, search for buried or sunken objects, magnetic field mapping, geophysical research, magnetic observatory use, measurement of magnetic properties of rocks or ferromagnetic objects, paleomagnetism, archaeological prospecting, conductivity mapping, gradiometer surveying, and magnetic modeling. The terminology, units of measurement, and assumed prerequisite knowledge are those employed in the field of geology and geophysics.
