Airborne geophysics is a commonly used tool for the geophysical prospecting of large areas with high spatial resolution. Especially the mapping of anomalies of the Earth’s magnetic field is well suited for airborne operation. Up to now the measurement of the total field and it’s gradients with caesium vapour magnetometers is the most widely used method in airborne magnetic surveys. But there are advantages of using the tensor gradient instead of the total field gradients, which will be shortly discussed.
