Atlantic City Mapping Project part of Cutting Edge:Geophysics:Workshop 07:Geophysics Activities
The Atlantic City project combines magnetic and gravimetric surveys with standard geological field mapping techniques. Lack of outcrops and Banded Iron Formations (BIFs) are a key features of the mapping area, and the magentic survey data assist students in determining sub-surface trends and predicting exposurs of the BIF. Students also use combined gavity and magnetic data across a BIF layer to model in 2-D its geometry.
