Abstract

Between January and March 1961 an official visit was made by the author to certain government organisations, oil companies, and airborne survey contracting companies in U.S.A. and Canada. The purpose of the visit was to study techniques of interpretation of aeromagnetic data, particularly in relation to oil exploration, and to attend a course in aeromagnetic interpretation at the United States Geological Survey in Washington. This Record contains the notes on discussions with specialists of the various organisations. Notes on other matters such as analysis of magnetic properties of rocks, properties of sedimentary rocks, age determinations of rocks, analysis of oil samples, and problems in interpretation of gravity data are also included.
