Also, contour lines are drawn in the areas between traverses, where there are no data, and inevitably introduce a form of noise. Examination of contour patterns is not, therefore, the complete answer to ﬁeld quality control. 2. In engineering site surveys, pollution monitoring and archaeology, the objects of interest are generally close to the surface and their positions in plan are usually much more important than their depths. They are, moreover, likely to be small and to produce anomalies detectable only over very small areas.
In some cases, if a meter suffers sharp sideways acceleration or is tilted, even gently, through more than about 45◦ , the springs may become tangled, and have to be unknotted by the manufacturer. , and must be reset if a limit is reached. Some meters can be reset with a second dial calibrated to a lower degree of accuracy but in others an uncalibrated adjustment screw is used. It is always advisable to allow several hours for the system to settle after reset, and surveys of areas with large elevation changes need to be carefully planned to allow for this.
E. the area is not anomalous! Use of terms such as Bouguer gravity (rather than Bouguer anomaly) avoids this confusion. 8 Wavelengths and half-widths Geophysical anomalies in proﬁle often resemble transient waves but vary in space rather than time. In describing them the terms frequency and frequency content are often loosely used, although wavenumber (the number of complete waves in unit distance) is pedantically correct. u. 8 Geophysical proﬁles across a pyrrhotite-bearing sulphide mass. u. and of the magnetic anomaly (b) a few hundred nT.
