Airborne Magnetic Trackline Database

The NOAA National Centers for Environmental Information (formerly National Geophysical Data Center) receive airborne magnetic survey data from US and non-US agencies. In an effort to provide a central library for digital aeromagnetic data in the public domain, NCEI is continuing to assimilate new digital data from aeromagnetic surveys in the United States. Major contributors to this important data base include the U.S. Geological Survey, U.S. Naval Oceanographic Office, U.S. Naval Research Laboratory, Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, the University of Texas, and the Natural Resources Canada (NRCAN). The details of these surveys are contained in an automated inventory system Geophysical Data System (GEODAS). The philosophy of exchange of data from the archive for new contributions has stimulated many organizations to transfer their data holdings to the Data Center.

    Processing Steps
    • 2015-04-22T00:00:00 - NOAA created the National Centers for Environmental Information (NCEI) by merging NOAA's National Climatic Data Center (NCDC), National Geophysical Data Center (NGDC), and National Oceanographic Data Center (NODC), including the National Coastal Data Development Center (NCDDC), per the Consolidated and Further Continuing Appropriations Act, 2015, Public Law 113-235. NCEI launched publicly on April 22, 2015.
