Analysis of a vertical dike, infinitely deep, striking north by fourier transform


The present work deals with the analysis of the frequency spectrum of a vertical magnetic dike like body, infinitely deep, striking north to determine its width and depth from the surface. Fourier transform of the functional representative of the theoretical magnetic anomaly for such a body has been obtained. By framing amplitude response curves, the parameters were estimated.
