Remanent and induced magnetism both contribute to static field magnetic anomalies whereas only induced magnetism contributes to dynamic field magnetic anomalies. The theory whereby this phenomenon may be used to advantage for in-situ separation of remanent from induced magnetism is presented as a prelude to observational evidence confirming the phenomenon. Four field experiments on Western States magnetic anomalies prove that it is possible to predict whether or not a given static field magnetic anomaly is primarily due to remanent or to induced magnetism. The limitations of the method include variability of micropulsation field direction, ellipticity, and intensity.
