1 The ARMS Projects 0322, 0343, 0344, 0384C, and 0413 were fully merged with Projects 0372, 0404, 0493, 0515, 0517, 0543, 0544, 0561, 0562, 0564, 0586, and 0587 giving Lower New England an apparent line-spacing of 0.5 mile. The ARMS projects are not shown on the location map.
2 Project 0640 is incomplete. Data east of -72° is missing.

Description of Table

No.: Internal USGS identification number
Name: Internal project name (not always the name used in publication title)
Flown By: Company or government agency who flew the original survey
Spacing and Dir.: Primary flight-line spacing and primary flight-line direction
Altitude: Primary flight altitude in feet; B = barometric elevation, AG = above ground draped over topography
LnMi.: Approximate total of line miles flown for this survey
Datum: Indicates if a regional field was removed and, if it could be determined, the base value removed. Total field = no regional was removed. Arb. (arbitrary) datum = the base value removed was not stated on the map.
Publication: Brief publication reference*. USGS publications are listed as: Open-File reports = xx-yyyy where xx is the publication year, Bulletins and Professional Papers = B-yyyy or P-yyyy, Geophysical Maps = GP-yyyy, Miscellaneous Field Studies Maps = MF-yyyy, Miscellaneous Investigations Maps = I-yyyy, Unpub = unpublished data, refers to all or part of the original project area.

*For more complete references see: Hill, P.L., 1991, Bibliographies and location maps of publications on aeromagnetic and aeroradiometric surveys for the states east of the Mississippi River north of the Ohio and Potomac rivers, U.S. Geological Survey Open-File Report 91-0370-C, 104 p.
