Abstract

Second vertical derivatives of magnetic fields, because of their high resolving power, are often very useful in interpreting magnetic anomalies. Formulas are developed which permit their ready numerical computation. Comparisons are made between the resulting approximate values and the rigorous values obtained for simple idealized fields. The similarity between maps of second vertical derivatives of fields and those of certain types of residual fields is discussed.
