Survey Background

Open File GSC 2784

1995 Aeromagnetic Total Field Map, British Columbia
(Parts of NTS 82N/NW)


The aeromagnetic survey was carried out by Geonex Aerodat Inc. using a Cessna 310 aircraft. A 0.005 nT sensitivity split-beam cesium vapour magnetometer was mounted in the tail boom of the survey aircraft.


The survey operations were carried out from June 3 to 26, 1993, October 8, 1993 to March 5, 1994 and July 7 to 12, 1994. The survey was flown at a mean terrain clearance of 305 metres. Average traverse line spacing was 800 metres and the control lines were flown at a 5000 metre spacing. Flight path was recovered using a differential Global Positioning System and a Doppler Navigation System coupled with a vertically mounted video camera.


After editing the survey data, the intersections of traverse and control lines were established and the differences in the magnetic values were computer analyzed and manually checked to obtain the level network. The levelled total field values were interpolated to a 200 metre grid. The International Geomagnetic Reference Field has not been removed. The data were processed and plotted by Geonex Aerodat Inc.
