Geophysics - Program Information

Geophysical survey areas

The Airborne Geophysical/Geological Mineral Inventory (AGGMI) program is a multi-year investment to expand the knowledge base of Alaska's mineral resources and catalyze private-sector mineral development. Products resulting from airborne geophysical surveys generally include: 1:63,360-scale aeromagnetic and airborne electromagnetic maps, 1:63,360-scale geologic maps; and various other geological, geochemical, and geophysical data compilations.

Questions relating the geophysics program or to geophysics publications should be directed to: Laurel Burns
