Title: Magnetometer Study of the Caddo-Shreveport Uplift, Louisiana

Author(s): William M. Barret (2)


Major disturbances of the vertical magnetic field are associated with the Caddo-Shreveport uplift. The writer presents the relationship between geologic structure and the vertical element. The possibility of well casing and tubing introducing a distortion of the lines of force delineating the field is considered, and the similarity of vertical intensity and gravity gradient profiles is suggested. The writer offers several hypotheses to account for the areal pattern of the resultant anomalies.
