Aeromagnetic Geophysical Investigation In El-Faiyum District, Western Desert, Egypt
MetadataShow full item record
The present paper deals with the interpretation of the aeromagnetic survey executed over the Faiyum area. Western Desert, Egypt. Qualitative as well as quantitative interpretation of the aeromagnetic data were carried out to obtain more information about the crystalline basement structure and the local structure in the sedimentary section. The analysis of the constructed magnetic maps which include the total intensity map, the vertical map, the regional map, the residual map, the second vertical derivative map and the downward continuation maps serve as basis for revealing the structural pattern of the basement complex, and the shallower structures. In connection with a quantitative interpretation by 2-dimensional model bodies a structural map for the basement was constructed.
