Abstract
This report summarizes the gravity and magnetic studies that were done as part of the Carver County Geologic Atlas (CGA) study. This work compliments the bedrock geology component of the project, and it has three objectives, as described below: 1. The first objective is to create gravity and magnetic grid images to assist in compiling the bedrock map sheet for the CGA. 2. The second objective was to use gravity and magnetic model studies to help create geologic cross sections that are to accompany the bedrock geology map sheet. 3. The third objective was to apply a semi-automated magnetic interpretation scheme called Euler Deconvolution (Reid and others, 1990), which estimates the location and depth of magnetic anomaly sources.
