Mapping the Lithospheric Magnetic Field from CHAMP Scalar and Vector Magnetic Data
Eighteen months into the CHAMP mission there is now a seizable data set of scalar and vector magnetic measurements. With this data the lithospheric magnetic field can be mapped far more accurately than in previous missions.
