Abstract

This problem was undertaken as an effort to gain an acquaintance with magnetic surveying methods and to test their applicability to the interpretation of geologic structure. The Rosamond fault was suggested by Dr. John P. Buwalda as suitable for investigation. It was selected because it appeared to be a well-defined structure and because the magnetic readings taken across it would be subject to only negligible interference from topographic effects.

The horizontal intensity survey across the Rosamond fault was undertaken in collaboration with Mr. Sidney Schafer, who made corresponding vertical intensity measurements over the same stations as a part of a survey covering Antelope Valley. Measurements of the horizontal component of the magnetic intensity were made at a total of 157 stations.
