Maganom: A computer program for the modeling and interpretation of marine magnetic anomalies
MetadataShow full item record
MAGANOM is a multi-purpose menu-driven interactive computer program for residual magnetic anomaly data processing and modeling. It is designed to model the magnetic anomalies above 2-dimensional magnetic bodies. The principal use of the program is to model sea floor spreading anomalies. It can also calculate and display the anomalies above magnetic bodies with irregular shapes. Designed primarily as a research tool, MAGANOM can also be used to teach the theory of magnetic anomaly formation at the undergraduate and graduate level. This manual contains: 1) an introduction to the elements of MAGANOM, 2) instructions for the interactive use of MAGANOM, 3) a reference section on the options of the program, 4) sample sessions to guide the user, 5) a discussion of the theoretical basis of MAGANOM, 6) a discussion of the FORTRAN-77 source code of MAGANOM, and 7) a listing of the supplementary files used in the sample sessions.
