Airborne Magnetic Survey, Michigan Upper Peninsula Area, 2008

July 28, 2022

This publication provides digital flight line data for a high-resolution magnetic survey over an area of the west-central Upper Peninsula of Michigan. The survey was flown in 2008 by Aeroquest under contract to Kennecott Eagle Minerals Company using a fixed-wing aircraft with a magnetometer mounted in a tail stinger. The USGS has obtained this 66,074 line km subset of the survey dataset for public release. Data were collected along north-south flight lines spaced 100 meters apart with east-west tie lines flown every 1000 meters. The nominal terrain clearance was 40 meters, although greater terrain clearances were required in several areas due to safety and aircraft performance considerations.
