montaj plus Extension Gravity and Magnetic Filtering
The Gravity and Magnetic Filtering extension allows you to create a grid that is reduced to the pole everywhere with a Continuous Reduction to the Pole function. You can also calculate Total Magnetic Field from Measured Horizontal Gradients.
The Gravity and Magnetic Filtering extension to Oasis montaj provides a Continuous Reduction to the Pole function for creating a grid that is reduced to the pole everywhere. The extension also enables you to calculate Total Magnetic Field from Measured Horizontal Gradients.
The Oasis montaj MAGMAP Filtering extension is required to run this extension.
Use the Gravity and Magnetic Filtering extension to:
- Vary the Earth’s magnetic inclination and declination to produce a grid that is reduced to the pole everywhere. The local inclination and declination of the earth’s magnetic field can vary quite dramatically over large regional surveys. One value of inclination and declination will not satisfy the reduction to the pole operator at all places on the grid.
- Calculate a total magnetic field grid from two horizontal gradient Hx and Hy grids (see technical reference below).
- Highlight anomalies (e.g. kimberlites) with high gradients Reduce the survey cost by eliminating the need to collect tie lines.

Gravity and Magnetic Filtering was developed by the Paterson, Grant & Watson Limited. It is licensed and distributed by Geosoft as an Oasis montaj plus third party extension.
