Digital data from the northeast Tusas Mountains aeromagnetic survey, Rio Arriba and Taos Counties, north-central New Mexico

August 11, 2011

This report contains digital data, image files, and text files describing data formats and survey procedures for a high-resolution aeromagnetic survey in the northeast Tusas Mountains region of north-central New Mexico. The survey covers a large portion of the Tres Piedras Ranger District of the Carson National Forest and adjacent areas, northwest of the town of Tres Piedras.

Several related and derivative products from these data are also presented as grids and images, including radar-altimeter heights, analytically draped aeromagnetic data, the elevation surface used for draping, and reduced-to-pole aeromagnetic data. Images are presented in various formats and are intended to be used as input to geographic information systems, standard graphics software, or map-plotting packages.
