Abstract

In 1975/76 a series of total intensity aeromagnetic traverses coveting the whole of continental Australia and Tasmania were flown at 10,000 ft elevation by the BMR. The purpose was to provide a data set suitable for use in a study of long-wavelength magnetic anomalies in the Australian region. The results were published by Wellman et al. (1985). This Record presents the aeromagnetic data set and discusses the two main causes of uncertainties in it, namely errors in navigation and contamination by external magnetic fields. Where base station recordings exist they are used to correct the aeromagnetic data for diurnal variation.
