Agency, E. P. (n.d.). Introduction to Potential Fields : Magnetics. Retrieved from

Excerpt: Magnetic and gravity exploration, also referred to as “potential fields” exploration, is used to give geoscientists an indirect way to “see” beneath the Earth’s surface by sensing different physical properties of rocks (magnetization and density, respectively). Gravity and magnetic exploration can help locate faults, mineral and petroleum resources, and ground-water reservoirs. Potential-field surveys are relatively inexpensive geophysical methods and can quickly cover large areas of ground.
