Summary

A detailed aeromagnetic survey of Mono Basin and Long Valley, California was flown by EON Geosciences Inc. from October 25th to November 11th, 2012. The high-resolution helicopter survey was flown at a flightline spacing of 400 m, a flightline azimuth of 65 degrees, a nominal flightline elevation above ground of 150 m, and consists of about 6,125 line-kilometers. Tie lines were spaced at a 4-km interval with a flightline azimuth of 155 degrees. A Scintrex CS-3 cesium magnetometer was used throughout the airborne survey and a GEM Systems GSM-19 magnetometer was used as a base station magnetometer located near the Mammoth Lake Yosemite airport. Data were processed by the contractor and include corrections for diurnal variations of the [...]

Purpose

This data release is intended for the dissemination of an aeromagnetic survey collected over Mono Basin and Long Valley, California. Data were collected to assist geothermal resources and volcano hazard studies. The survey was funded by the USGS Geothermal Program; Volcano Hazards Program; and the Geology, Minerals, Energy, and Geophysics Science Center. Results and interpretation were provided by Peacock, J.R., Mangan, M.T., McPhee, D.K., and Ponce, D.A., 2015, Imaging the magmatic system of Mono Basin, California, with magnetotellurics in three-dimensions: Journal of Geophysical Research, Solid Earth, v. 120, p. 7273-7289, https://doi.org/10.1002/2015JB012071.
