Abstract

The magnetic field in the Bateke plateau has been observed using a proton magnetometer. The survey was made during the period from June to October 2015. The aim of the study is to determine the magnetic anomalies of this area. The observations were extended in the area planning from latitude 04°16’40’ S to longitude 16°42’30 W. While the geological structure of this area presents quite smooth variations, the geomagnetic distribution shows some irregularities associated with moho structure of this zone.
