Lilley, FEM, Parker RL.  1976.  Magnetic daily variations compared between the east and west coasts of Australia. Geophysical Journal of the Royal Astronomical Society. 44:719-724.: Blackwell Publishing Ltd   10.1111/j.1365-246X.1976.tb00304.x   AbstractWebsite

A study of magnetic daily variations shows their vertical component to be enhanced at the west coast of Australia, just as previous work had showed it to be reduced at the east coast. The anomalous contributions appear most likely to be due to induction by the onshore horizontal component of the daily variation field. The Australian data may also indicate regional differences in the structure of the continent.

Loncarevic, BD, Parker RL.  1971.  Mid-Atlantic Ridge near 45°N. XVII. Magnetic anomalies and ocean floor spreading. Canadian Journal of Earth Sciences. 8:883-898.   10.1139/e71-080   AbstractWebsite

In the North Atlantic it is difficult to correlate single magnetic profiles with the spreading ocean floor magnetic models. Within the area of intensive surveys at 45° N, it is possible to average the observations in the direction of the trend of the magnetic anomalies. The profile of averaged anomalies for all data between 45° N and 45.5° N correlates well with a magnetic model spreading (with respect to the ridge axes) westwards at 1.28 cm/y and eastwards at 1.10 cm/y, if the trend of the anomalies is assumed to be 015° East of North.

Lowe, DAJ, Parker RL, Purucker ME, Constable CG.  2001.  Estimating the crustal power spectrum from vector Magsat data. Journal of Geophysical Research-Solid Earth. 106:8589-8598.   10.1029/2000jb900437   AbstractWebsite

The Earth's magnetic field can be subdivided into core and crustal components and we seek to characterize the crustal part through its spatial power spectrum, R-1. We process vector Magsat data to isolate the crustal field and then invert power spectral densities of flight-local components along-track for R-1 following O'Brien et al. [1999]. Our model, designated LPPC, is accurate up to approximately spherical harmonic degree 45 (lambda = 900 km): this is the resolution limit of our data and suggests that global crustal anomaly maps constructed from vector Magsat data should not contain features with wavelengths less than 900 km. We find continental power spectra to be greater than oceanic ones and attribute this to the relative thicknesses of continental and oceanic crust.
