Cultural Resources Magnetometer Survey and Testing

The Ocean Beach magnetometer survey was performed by a crew of three EH&A archaeologists, during late September and early October, 1987. Autumn was chosen as the optimum time for conducting the survey, as the beach is at its maximum width, and weather conditions are most favorable at this time of year.
