Method and Algorithm for Obtaining Elements of the Tensor of Spatial Derivatives of the Magnetic Induction Vector in the Problem of Searching for Magnetic Anomalies

  • M. A. PriminEmail author
  • I. V. Nedayvoda


The values of all the components of the magnetic induction vector and its first-order spatial derivatives are determined from the spatial distribution of the magnetic field parameter values at each point of the observation plane. The inverse problem is solved using the analytic eigenvector method. The execution of the proposed algorithm was simulated using real data of magnetometric studies in the geomagnetic field.
