There is little doubt that manual editing to remove cultural noise from high-resolution aeromagnetic (HRAM) data yields cleaner data than automated techniques. However, because the manual technique is very slow, relatively expensive, and tedious, it is not preferred by many HRAM processors. For this reason, we have developed a semi-automated cultural editing (SAUCE) technique to remove cultural noise from HRAM data. SAUCE is a modified version of the manual technique, but it is much faster (at least five-fold), more cost-effective, and less tedious.
