Abstract

The data for the aeromagnetic map (sheet 1) of the King Range and Chemise Mountain areas wre collected in 1978 and compiled at a scale of 1:62,500. Northeast-southwest traverses were spaced at 0.8-km intervals at an altitude for 300 m above the ground surface and 600 m above the ocean because of cliffs along the shore. The contour interval is 10 of or 50γ, depending on the steepness of local gradients in the Earth's magnetic field. A regional field of approximately 5.6 γ/km was removed from the data before contouring.
