A total field magnetometer survey of nine quadrangles in Coshocton County is presented. The survey area is bounded by 40.125 and 40.500 degrees latitude and -81.617 and -82.000 degrees longitude. The anomaly field is derived from the total field values that are corrected for the IGRF and the diurnal fields. Corrected residual values are machine gridded at one half mile spacings, corresponding to 52 rows (latitude) and 43 columns (longitude). The grid node values were then machine contoured to produce anomaly maps of the area. Two qualitative interpretations of the anomalies are given; 1.) Observed variations are due to basement faulting, or 2.) Observed variations are due to susceptibility and remanence variations across lithologic units.
