Abstract

Presents an interpretation of the two strongest magnetic anomalies produced by Ramon Basalt (Early Cretaceous) located in the west Ramon area. The shape of the anomalies, suggests a WNW magnetization caused by a strong remanent magnetization. All three basalt flows comprising this body have remarkably strong natural remanent magnetization. The effective magnetization of the southern body is a vector sum of the induced magnetization and the NRM. According to the model, the upper flow alone produces almost the entire aeromagnetic anomaly. -from Authors
