Magnetometry

Magnetometry is the most frequently used geophysical technique for non-destructive examination of buried archaeological remains.

The technique is used to map contrasts in soil magnetism caused by burning and organic enrichment of the soil during human settlement and activity. Magnetometry is particularly effective for investigating buried settlements and deserted villages, military encampments, ceremonial complexes, enclosure systems, and metal working sites.

Target uses a specially designed magnetometer system combining a 10-channel data logger, 1m fluxgate gradiometer sensors and GLONASS/RTK cm precision GPS. This system is lightweight, modular, and employed with or without a quad/vehicle for small or large-scale investigations.
