The structure of Upper Mesopotamian cities: insight from fluxgate
gradiometer survey at Kazane Hoyuk, south-eastern Turkey.
This survey, known as the Ross Sea Fluxgate
mission, aimed to help researchers track the movement of sea ice in this critical region.
Providing a much more intelligent compass to the boat's autopilot and navigation system compared to traditional fluxgate
models, the Raymarine 9-axis unit compensates for heel quickly and self-corrects but best of all doesn't require calibration --often the bane of boaters when the system receives a shock and requires resetting.
Operators of the machine - a fluxgate
gradiometer -had to remove all items of metal before starting the work, so findings were not distorted.
Contract Awarded for 3 aixis magnetic fluxgate
The vehicle navigation relies on a satellite-based GPS receiver, a fluxgate
compass, a 3-axis inclinometer, a pressure sensor, and a Doppler velocity log.
and the magnetic compasses in the P-38 aren't reliable and can't be trusted because they can't be swung properly.
He goes on to state: 'In contrast to the variometer, the fluxgate
is a much more complex and recent sensor'.
The group was awarded funding from the university to purchase a fluxgate
gradiometer to conduct the survey.
Among specific topics are micro-machined electrochemical seismic sensors with interdigital electrodes, a simple method for depositing DNA on the mica, an analytical model of a fluxgate
system, analyzing broken wires during gold wire bonding process, and an integrated micro-sensor system to gather meteorological information.
The WindMate 350 reports wind direction in degrees and compass points using an onboard fluxgate
compass, it calculates head, tail and cross wind, displays a 48-hour history, is water resistant and floats.
On the consideration of magnetic field detection, the "radical pair" mechanism is completely different from the traditional magnetic field detection mechanisms, such as GMI Magnetometer, Fluxgate
Magnetometer, SQUID Magnetometer, and Proton Magnetometer.
