An aeromagnetic survey is a common type of geophysical survey carried out using a magnetometer aboard or towed behind an aircraft.
An aircraft is a machine that is able to fly by gaining support from the air.
Anti-submarine warfare (ASW, or in older form A/S) is a branch of underwater warfare that uses surface warships, aircraft, or other submarines to find, track and deter, damage, or destroy enemy submarines.
Autolycus or Sniffer was a method for detecting submerged submarines from aircraft.
Earth's magnetic field, also known as the geomagnetic field, is the magnetic field that extends from the Earth's interior out into space, where it meets the solar wind, a stream of charged particles emanating from the Sun.
Ferromagnetism is the basic mechanism by which certain materials (such as iron) form permanent magnets, or are attracted to magnets.
The fuselage (from the French fuselé "spindle-shaped") is an aircraft's main body section.
A geological survey is the systematic investigation of the geology beneath a given piece of ground for the purpose of creating a geological map or model.
A geologist is a scientist who studies the solid and liquid matter that constitutes the Earth as well as the processes that shape it.
Geology (from the Ancient Greek γῆ, gē, i.e. "earth" and -λoγία, -logia, i.e. "study of, discourse") is an earth science concerned with the solid Earth, the rocks of which it is composed, and the processes by which they change over time.
Geophysics is a subject of natural science concerned with the physical processes and physical properties of the Earth and its surrounding space environment, and the use of quantitative methods for their analysis.
Gulf Oil was a major global oil company from 1901 to 1981.
The Los Angeles Times is a daily newspaper which has been published in Los Angeles, California since 1881.
A magnetic field is a vector field that describes the magnetic influence of electrical currents and magnetized materials.
A magnetometer is an instrument that measures magnetism—either the magnetization of a magnetic material like a ferromagnet, or the direction, strength, or relative change of a magnetic field at a particular location.
A mineral is a naturally occurring chemical compound, usually of crystalline form and not produced by life processes.
A submarine (or simply sub) is a watercraft capable of independent operation underwater.
Victor Vacquier, Sr. (October 13, 1907 – January 11, 2009) was a professor of geophysics at the Scripps Institution of Oceanography at the University of California, San Diego.
