      Amchitka Island, being only 50 miles from Kiska and within range of occupied Attu Island was the next step in the American advance. Enough forces were scraped together from existing units and American forces made an unopposed landing on Amchitka on Janu , although the destroyer Worden (DD) grounded and sank with the loss of 14 s/wars: Aleutian Islands Campaign. Baker (, p. 96), U.S. Geological Survey (USGS), indicates that this may be the island named "St. Makarius (St. Markiana)" by Vitus Bering on Octo (Old Style (O.S.) calendar). Golder (, p. ), however, was of the opinion that Amchitka is too low to have been seen by Bering, and thus it is more probable that Kiska as the.

      The Cook Inlet and Susitna basins of south-central Alaska are bordered by volcanoes and magnetite-bearing bedrock. Measurements of magnetic susceptibility of Pliocene strata in Cook Inlet and late Paleocene/early Eocene sedimentary rocks in Susitna Basin layers show values as high as 10x10 -3 SI; those associated with other measured Tertiary. More than a quarter-century has now passed since the United States set off the last of three underground atomic blasts in the remote wilderness of the Aleutian islands, off the coast of Alaska. Cannikin, as this third test was called, exploded as planned on November 6, , on Amchitka Island. The first test, Project Long Shot (), was designed to determine whether .

Also code named "Fox Runway". Prewar and during World War II part of the Territory of Alaska. Aeromagnetic data interpretation, in the southern Egyptian part of the African Red Sea shelf and its coastal strip, was made. The data suggest that this shelf can be divided into two sections: a southern section of rifting oceanic crust, of thickness comparable to that of oceanic layer 2, and a northern one of continental crust apparently subjected to basic volcanicity related to initial Red Cited by: 4.

Toronto, Canada - Geoscience students and geologists now have a useful guide for learning the theory and practice of aeromagnetic surveying. An e-book on Aeromagnetic Surveys: Principles, Practice and Interpretation, authored by Colin Reeves of Earthworks and published by Geosoft, is now available.

This new e-book provides a useful guide for non-specialists looking to gain a. An aeromagnetic survey is a common type of geophysical survey carried out using a magnetometer aboard or towed behind an aircraft. The principle is similar to a magnetic survey carried out with a hand-held magnetometer, but allows much larger areas of the Earth's surface to be covered quickly for regional reconnaissance.
