Summary This chapter gives a short description of the history, instruments, corrections, navigation and data processing used in modern gravity and magnetic measurements at sea. A short section on interpretation includes maps and profiles from a marine : L. L. Nettleton. Gravity surveys are used either alone or in combination with magnetotelluric, magnetic, and induced polarization and resistivity surveys to determine the location and size of the major source structures containing accumulations of hydrocarbons, massive base metal deposits, iron ore, salt domes, and hydrogeological aquifers.   Gravity and magnetic surveys in Graham Land. British Antarctic Survey Scientific Rep 1– Renner, R. G. B., Sturgeon, L. J. S. & Garrett, S. W. Reconnaissance gravity and aeromagnetic surveys Cited by: Gravity and magnetic exploration techniques are both passive in that they exploit a naturally existing field of the Earth. The measured quantity is the integrated effect of the subsurface. The gravity and magnetic fields are both irrotational vector fields described by potential theory, and are connected through Poisson’s relationship.

A program of gravity and magnetic surveys was begun in in this area of intersection and south­ ward along the basin-and-range fault system of the upper Arkansas River valley. These geophysical stud­ ies were undertaken to complement and extend the geologic studies by defining more clearly the nature. Gravity and magnetic surveys play an important role in mapping geological structures at micro (oil concession) and macro (continental) scales, as these surveys allow rapid spatial coverage at modest cost compared to seismic reflection methods.

Section 2: Gravity Surveying. Introduction. Gravity surveys measure the acceleration due to gravity, e value of g at Earth’s surface is ms Gravitational attraction depends on density of underlying rocks, so value of g varies across surface of Earth.

The books come in a durable paperback format, with full-colour cover, black & white contents, and monochrome illustrations (where present). 2 Measuring gravity It is possible to build an instrument that measures gdirectly. Such an instrument is called an absolute gravity meter and is large, unwieldy and expensive. For eld surveys it is more usual to use a relative gravity meter. These are cheaper, smaller and more robust. But they do not measure the absolute value of g. Magnetic survey, one of the tools used by exploration geophysicists in their search for mineral-bearing ore bodies or even oil-bearing sedimentary structures and by archaeologists to locate and map the remains of buried essential feature is the measurement of the magnetic-field intensity and sometimes the magnetic inclination, or dip, and declination (departure from geographic.
