Abstract

Investigation of geological structure by gravimetric and magnetic field surveys requires consideration of relationships between gravity anomaly and magnetic anomaly generating sources. The possibility of using Poisson's Relation to examine magnetic and gravity fields related to a common source is intriguing. This relation is expressed as follows:  
A(x,y,z)=IGρU(x,y,z)α,
(1)
where A (x, y, z) is the magnetic field potential and U (x, y, z) is the gravity field potential at a point in space due to a source of uniform density ρ and uniform magnetization I in the direction α. This expression has been used to derive magnetic anomalies over idealized forms (Nettleton, 1940) and, by Baranov (1957), to extract pseudogravity fields from magnetic field data. The purpose of this paper is to develop an expression for extracting a pseudomagnetic field from gravity field data and to examine the practical applications of this expression.
