A new method as presented, allows the joint interpretation of both electromagnetic (EM) and magnetic logs in layered ground, based on the fact that the susceptibility responses for these two measurements are linear. Thus we can make use of the classical properties of the Fourier transform to extract from these two signals the magnetic field due to remanent magnetization. Theoretical models show that for a sufficient sample step this remanent magnetization can be recovered, even if the Koenigsberger ratio is of the order of 0.2 and if the thickness of the magnetized layer is of the order of 1 m. The results for two case examples in a sedimentary context are also shown. Despite the difficulties due to experimental procedures, we show that the amplitude of the extracted information is significant in these two cases, even if its variations are somewhat structureless and cannot be easily explained by the geology.
