Processed line aeromagnetic data over Northern Palmer Land, Antarctic Peninsula (2002/03 season)
GB/NERC/BAS/PDC/01358

Summary

Abstract:
Over 20,000 km of new aeromagnetic data were acquired over Palmer Land during the 2002-2003 Antarctic campaign. Profile lines were oriented E-W with N-S tie lines. Line spacing was 5 km, tie lines were 25 km apart and nominal flight altitude was 2800 m. Aeromagnetic processing included magnetic compensation, IGRF removal, diurnal correction, and levelling. Mean cross-over errors after microlevelling were <1 nT. Aeromagnetic data were gridded (1 km cell size) and reduced to the pole.

We present here the processed line aeromagnetic data acquired using scintrex cesium magnetometers mounted on the BAS aerogeophysical equiped Twin Otter.
Data are provided as XYZ ASCII line data.
