Geophysical Investigation of Abakaliki Area using Aeromagnetic Method

ABSTRACT  Aeromagnetic data over Abakaliki area of the lower Benue trough of Nigeria was interpreted qualitatively and quantitatively using Oasis montaj software (version: 6.4.2 H.J).The interpretation unveiled basic intrusive bodies like dyke, lacolyte and batholyte in the study area. It also showed fault zone which trends North East to south western (NE-SW) part of the study area. Quantitative interpretation of the area was carried out by source parameter imaging and forward and inverse mo...
