Paper Abstract

A geomagnetic field is a vectorial quantity. However, the single method of conducting magnetic surveys is the measurement of the modulus (absolute value) of the magnetic field intensity T. This is caused by the constructive simplicity of the T-magnetometer and by the possibility of measurements on a moving carrier and by insufficiently strict, often qualitative, geological interpretation of magnetic anomalies. For measurement of the vectorial geomagnetic field components H and Z, there are necessarily more complex measuring arrangements, caused by stringent requirements for disposition of magnetic sensors and platform stabilization on a moving carrier.
