Project Magnet Data


NGDC is pleased to announce the availability of the complete Project Magnet data collection on CD-ROM - Product Number 1089-A27-002. Project Magnet data include low altitude, high density individual track line surveys, high altitude vector data and regional magnetic anomaly grids.

From 1951 through 1994, the U.S. Navy, under its Project Magnet program, continuously collected vector aeromagnetic survey data to support the U.S. Geospatial-Intellegence Mapping Agency (formerly NIMA) world magnetic modeling and charting program. The cd-rom consist of flight surveys in binary format, (high-level survey coverage image) documentation, and meta-data (histograms and help files). The data on this compact disc, contributed by the U.S. Naval Oceanographic Office, were assembled to simplify the work of scientists performing regional and global geophysical studies, including research into the nature of Earth's magnetic field.
