AbstractA three-component aeromagnetic survey of the Norclic countries and the Greenland and Norwegian seas was carried out in the fall of 1965. The survey data was processed to yield averages over one half minute of time or roughly 3.5 km of flight track. A regional field, in the form of a third degree polynomial, was removed from the data, and the resulting '1/2 minute residuals' were plotted by computer. These residuals are represented in three way: as residual profiles, for each magnetic component; as two-dimensional vector residuals, in two orthogonal planes; and as segments of contour lines. Attention is drawn to several large anomaly systems, although no interpretation is
