A new, multinational, Antarctic Digital Magnetic Anomaly Project (ADMAP) has been launched to compile near-surface and satellite magnetic anomaly data into a digital map and database for the Antarctic continent and surrounding oceans. The unified data set will be a powerful tool for determining the structure, geologic processes, and tectonic evolution of the continent.
