    • Abstract

       

      From the data of the geomagnetic survey of the Indian equatorial region conducted during 1971, it has been possible to deduce the subsurface magnetic anomalies at each survey station. The vertical magnetic anomaly profiles seem to reflect some of the known geological structures in the region. The association between magnetic anomalies and the deep-seated structures in this area emphasises the importance of future intensive studies.
