One of the widely used geometrical configurations for magnetic interpretation is the long horizontal circular cylinder. Gay (1965) provides a set of master curves for the interpretation of magnetic anomalies of these bodies. Rao et al. (1973) formulates functions of the anomaly at several distances from an arbitrary point, and the linear equations thus formed are solved for coefficients related to the parameters of the causative body. Prakasa Rao and Murthy (1976) propose an empirical method for rapid interpretation. Atchuta Rao and Ram Babu (1980), Mohan et al. (1982), and Sampath Kumar and Prakasa Rao (1984) describe methods based on Hilbert transforms. Radhakrishna Murthy et al. (1980) propose a method based on two components of the anomalous magnetic field. With the exception of the direct method of Prakasa Rao and Murthy (1976), the other methods mentioned involve reduction of field curves and then matching with master curves, solving linear equations, performing Hilbert transformations, and computation of derivatives, respectively. Hence they are not suitable for direct and rapid interpretation. This note contains a simple nomogram for the magnetic effect due to an arbitrarily magnetized horizontal cylinder.
