ADMAP-SCAR Report (
The flurry of e-mails and phone calls spawned by the SCAR'03 meeting in
The ADMAP grids
at OSU will be freely released to the public in
the next few days. I'll check with EOS to see about announcing the release
of grids as a short news item. Where else should we announce the release
of grids to the public?
2. The CD will now only include
a. The aeromagnetic profiles used for the published map in the format agreed upon at ADMAP III,
b. the 5-km grid for the published map,
c. the 5-km grid of the aeromagnetic and marine data,
d. the 5-km regional anomaly grid with Magsat gap predictions, and
The CD will
have the same authorship as the published map.
BAS and INGV
will take the lead on getting the CD produced ASAP. Help is also available
from the USGS for this effort.
The CD will
contain limited metadata giving the basic details of the datasets and probably a
simple location map for each survey. However, new data should contain the
metadata, and the CD's point database and grid should be updated with additional
metadata. Carol has resources to develop and implement an appropriate plan
and will take the lead on this.
6. New ADMAP publications under development include
a. a short paper for the SCAR'03 proceedings volume from Golynsky et al.,
b. an EOS article accompanying the release of the CD that summarizes the CD's production and ADMAP's plans for the future, and
article by the map's authors that highlights the geological significance and
limitations of the current map.
We should plan
for another meeting (ADMAP IV) probably in Spring'04. The
CD will be hopefully completed by then so that the main purpose of ADMAP IV will
be to consider new activities and plans.
8. In an effort to keep things on track, I'll put out a report on these action items to you in Jan'04.
