The Eurasian basin, which includes the mid-ocean Gakkel Ridge and the abyssal Nansen and Amundsen basins, is the only region of the world's oceans where the magnetic field has been thoroughly studied. Systematic surveys have also been made over the Lomonosov and Mendeleyev Ridges and in intervening basins adjacent to the Eurasian coast of the Arctic Ocean. Being so well surveyed, the Arctic basin is particularly useful for studying the relation of magnetic anomalies to complex oceanic regions.
