Based on magnetometric measurements, additional trial trenches were created in various parts of the field (see Fig.
Detected by aerial photographs taken in 1997 (Lago et al, 1998), knowledge about its layout was greatly enhanced by magnetometric surveys carried out in 2009 (Marquez-Romero et al, 2011a) (Fig.
The aim of this work is to study the magnetic state of ternary quasi-ordered [Fe.sub.65][Al.sub.35-x][M.sub.x] ([M.sub.x] = Ga, B; x = 5 at.%) alloys based on an analysis of the structure, Moossbauer and magnetometric data, and their comparison with the results of analogous studies of the [Fe.sub.65][Al.sub.35] alloy.

M-H hysteresis loops (from -20 to 20 kOe, 300 K) were obtained on (Quantum Design) Physical Property Measurement System (PPMS) equipped with vibration magnetometric device (VSM) with 2 mm amplitude of oscillations, 40 Hz frequency.
Using an unidimensional model for long cylinders, with a ratio of length-diameter [gamma] [greater than or equal to] 10, Chen has calculated the fluxmetric demagnetization factor [N.sub.f], for -1 [less than or equal to] [chi] [infinity], and the magnetometric demagnetization factor [N.sub.m], for [chi] [right arrow] [infinity].
With regards to [5], if only traffic volume is measured, magnetometric error-rate is really similar to the classification errors of other technologies.
However, this anomaly has remained further unexplored until 2008 when Salansky (2009) realized a ground magnetometric profile across it.
