An aeromagnetic map covering the Kapuskasing Structural Zone.

New technological developments in computers, particularly interactive workstations and color monitors, have facilitated and enhanced the use of both types of potential field data. LITHOPROBE is taking advantage of these developments, as exemplified by recent work in the Kapuskasing Structural Zone (see slide) where some geological features have been better delineated and others extended beyond their mapped locations by means of processed gravity and magnetic maps. In the Lithoprobe East Transect, characteristic geological features on Newfoundland have been extended across the Gulf of St. Lawrence to Nova Scotia and New Brunswick on the basis of analysis of combined marine magnetic and aeromagnetic data.
