Processed line aeromagnetic data over Charcot Island, western Antarctic Peninsula (1996/97 season)
GB/NERC/BAS/PDC/01343

Summary

Abstract:
During the 1996-1997 Antarctic field season, an aeromagnetic survey was carried out by the BAS to the west of Alexander Island, designed to investigate the Charcot Island anomaly.

The presented data was collected using wingtip mounted Caesium-vapour magnetometers. Magnetic effects due to aircraft motion were actively compensated using a triad of fluxgate magnetometers mounted in the tail of the aircraft.
Data are provided as XYZ ASCII line data.
