Title:
Line, grid, and vector data, and maps for the airborne geophysical survey of the Slate Creek-Slana River Survey, Chistochina mining district, south-central Alaska
Abstract:
This digital publication, GPR 2009-1, contains data produced from airborne geophysical surveys conducted in 2008 for the Slate Creek-Slana River survey area in the Chistochina mining district, south-central Alaska. Aeromagnetic and electromagnetic (EM) data were acquired by helicopter for about 442 sq miles. Fugro Airborne Survey's frequency-domain DIGHEM V system was used for the EM data. GPR 2009-1 includes (1) raw and processed linedata; (2) gridded data; (3) vector files of data contours and flight lines; and (4) maps of the data.
Supplemental_Information:
The maps were compiled and drawn under contract between the State of Alaska, Department of Natural Resources, Division of Geological & Geophysical Surveys (DGGS), and Stevens Exploration Management Corp. Airborne geophysical data for the area were acquired and processed by Fugro Airborne Surveys in 2008 and 2009. Index maps and page-sized color images of the gridded data are included in GPR2009-1BrowseGraphic.PDF. A future publication will include the Contractor's project report, interpretation map, and EM anomalies, as well as other files. File names for GPR 2009-1 with basic definitions and comments are given below.

    Entity_and_Attribute_Detail_Citation:
    L.E. Burns, Division of Geological & Geophysical Surveys and Fugro Airborne Surveys
    SlateCkLinedata.GDB and SlateCkLinedata.XYZ
    Linedata containing raw and processed linedata, and related calculated fields. Attributes below pertain to both SlateCkLinedata.gdb and SlateCkLinedata.xyz. Information contained in the ID cell, described below for the GDB version, is included in the XYZ file in Geosoft ASCII XYZ format as lines or columns. (Source: Fugro Airborne Surveys & L.E. Burns)

    ID CELL
    The ID Cell in the Geosoft GDB database, in format 'X43219:BNFN', provides five pieces of information at a minimum. The line type, and basic line number and associated flight segment are given on the left side of the colon; the EM bird identification and flight number are given to the right of the colon. The EM bird identification and flight number are also in the separate channel 'FLIGHT' and are described below in the attribute 'FLIGHT'. (Source: Fugro Airborne Surveys, L.E. Burns, and Geosoft)

    The line type, and the basic line number and associated flight segment are in the format of 'X43210'.
    -------------------------------------------------------------
    1. 'X' = Line Type where:

    > L for normal (traverse) lines; oriented nominally NW-SE (350 degrees).
    > T for tie and border (boundary) lines; tie lines oriented nominally NE-SW (80 degrees); border lines occur around the outline border where traverse or tie lines are not parallel to the outline.
    
    -------------------------------------------------------------
    2. '43210' represents the basic line number, designated before flying, and always ends in a multiple of '10'. In general, the traverse lines increase by 10 from west to east, e.g. 10040, 10050, 10060; the tie lines increase by 10 from north to south; and the border lines increase by 10 in general from northwest to southeast. Line numbers used in this project include:
    > a. Traverse lines 10010 (west) to 11510 (east);
    > b. Tie lines 19010 (north) to 19130 (south);
    > c. Boundary lines 19140 (northwest) to 19570 (southeast).
    
    -------------------------------------------------------------
    3. The fifth digit in '43210' represents the flight segment along a single traverse, tie, or border line. The fifth digit for the initial flight segment is '0', and is increased by '1' for each successive flight segment along the line, e.g., 10040, 10041, 10042, 10043. Numerous flight segments along a line are often required because of long line length, weather, refueling, active diurnal, other 'out-of-spec' data, and other items. The flight segments along a line may be in any spatial order, and may not have the same flight number (FN).

    GPR2009-1GridsGRD.zip and GPR2009-1ERS.zip
    The zip files contain the six grids and supporting files for this publication in either Geosoft binary float (GRD) format or ER Mapper (ERS) format. Each grid is in NAD 27 datum, UTM 6N, and has 25m cell size with x and y in meters. Grid files are listed below as attributes. Two supporting files, a Geosoft projection file (GI) and a Geosoft v7-produced metadata file (XML), are included for each Geosoft grid file. The Geosoft grid is viewable (or importable into other software) without using these supported files. When using Geosoft, the GI file automatically sets the projection of the grid is the GI file is placed in the same directory as the grid file (GRD). Setting the projection can also be done manually in Geosoft without the GI file. Each ER Mapper grid consists of two files, a header (projection) file (.ERS) and a data file (no extension). Both ER Mapper files are necessary to view a grid or to convert it to another software format. (Source: Fugro Airborne Surveys)

    Entity_and_Attribute_Overview:
    Six vector files are included in 'GPR2009-1Vectors.zip' in Autocad DXF format, v2000. Four of the files (SlateCk-magigrf.dxf, SlateCk-res56k.dxf, SlateCk-res7200.dxf, and SlateCk-res900.dxf) contain data contours produced from the data grids 'SlateCk-magigrf.grd', 'SlateCk-res56k.grd', 'SlateCk-res7200.grd', and 'SlateCk-res900.grd', and appear respectively on maps 2a,b, 5a,b, 7a,b, and 9a,b. 'SlateCk-fp' contains all flight lines of the survey, does not occur on any of the current maps, but is provided for use as overlays. 'SlateCk-SecGrid.dxf' contains thin section grid lines, thicker township and ranges lines, township and range labels, and map borders. This file is used for orientation purposes on maps that do not have topographic contour lines, and instead have geophysical data contour lines - maps 2a,b, 5a,b, 7a,b, and 9a,b. To produce this file, the Alaska PLSS Section Grid shapefile (<ftp://ftp.dnr.state.ak.us/asgdc/adnr/pls_section.zip>) was downloaded on 1/12/09 from the Alaska Department of Natural Resources - Land Records Information Section. The shapefile was converted to a MapInfo TAB file, reprojected from NAD83 to NAD27 UTM Zone 6, and cut to fit the survey area using MapInfo Professional v9.0. The file was verified to project correctly with the corresponding USGS DRG topographic map. The file was further modified by Fugro Airborne Surveys using AutoCad, who changed the township and range line widths and colors, and added township and range labels. Note that though the flight path labeling and township and range labels on files 'SlateCk-fp ' and 'SlateCk-SecGrid' import correctly in Geosoft v 6.4, the labels are shifted to the left in Geosoft v 7.0 and MapInfo v 9.0 and v 9.0.2. Other software may also be affected as well. Though not ideal in terms of software compatibility, DXF 2000 is the best format we could achieve at this time with current software. Importing the flight path in Autocad v. 13, the format used for geophysical publications since 1994, into MapInfo v 8.5 produced more than 7,000 TAB files instead of the typical 4 or 5, and was not practical. Similar problems occurred with the section grid file. The contour numbers given in the data contour files are vectors, not text, and are thus not affected.

Who produced the data set?

  1. Who are the originators of the data set? (may include formal authors, digital compilers, and editors)

  2. Who also contributed to the data set?

    Funding was provided by the Alaska State Legislature as part of the DGGS Airborne Geophysical/Geological Mineral Inventory (AGGMI) program.

  3. To whom should users address questions about the data?


Why was the data set created?

The survey was part of the Alaska Airborne Geophysical/Geological Mineral Inventory project funded by the Alaska State Legislature and managed by State of Alaska, Department of Natural Resources (DNR), Division of Geological & Geophysical Surveys (DGGS). The project seeks to catalyze private-sector mineral development investment. The project delineates mineral zones on Alaska state lands that: 1) have major economic value; 2) can be developed in the short term to provide high quality jobs for Alaska; and 3) will provide economic diversification to help offset the loss of Prudhoe Bay oil revenue.

  2. How were the data generated, processed, and modified?

    Date: 2008 (process 1 of 5)
    The airborne geophysical data were acquired with a DIGHEM(V) Electromagnetic (EM) system and a Fugro D1344 cesium magnetometer with a Scintrex CS3 cesium censor. Data were acquired between Sept. 15th and Oct. 11th 2008. The EM and magnetic sensors were flown at a height of 100 feet. In addition, the survey recorded data from a radar altimeter, GPS navigation system, 50/60 Hz monitors, and video camera. Flights were performed with an AS350B-3 Squirrel helicopter at a mean terrain clearance of 200 feet along N350E survey flight lines with one-quarter mile line spacing. Tie lines were flown perpendicular to the flight lines at intervals of approximately 3 miles. A Novatel OEM4 Global Positioning System was used for navigation and flight path recovery. The helicopter position was derived every 0.5 seconds (2 Hz); the ground GPS base station data were collected at 0.1 second (10 Hz) intervals. The use of the differentially-corrected base station data results in a positional accuracy of better than one meter. The positional xy data are interpolated from 2 Hz to 10 Hz. Flight path positions were projected onto the Clarke 1866 (UTM zone 6) spheroid, 1927 North American datum using a central meridian (CM) of 147 degrees, a north constant of 0 and an east constant of 500,000.

    Date: 2009 (process 2 of 5)
    The total magnetic field data were acquired with a sampling interval of 0.1 seconds, and were (1) corrected for measured system lag, (2) corrected for diurnal variations by subtraction of the digitally recorded base station magnetic data (linedata field 'mag_diu'), (3) adjusted for regional variations using date of flight and altimeter-adjusted IGRF, (4) leveled to the tie line data resulting in the final residual magnetic intensity (linedata field 'mag_rmi'), (5) increased by a constant of 56,882 to provide an IGRF-corrected total magnetic field column (linedata field 'mag_igrf') and (6) interpolated onto a regular 80-m grid using a modified Akima (1970) technique. The total magnetic field data were subjected to a processing algorithm that enhances the response of magnetic bodies in the upper 500 m and attenuates the response of deeper bodies. The resulting (calculated) vertical gradient grid ('SlateCk-cvg') provides better definition and resolution of near-surface magnetic units. It also identifies weak magnetic features that may not be evident in the total field data. All magnetic grids were then resampled from the 80-m cell size down to a 25-m cell size using a modified Akima (1970) technique to produce the maps and final grids contained in this publication.

    Data sources used in this process:

    • Akima, 1970

    Date: 2009 (process 3 of 5)
    The DIGHEM V EM system measured inphase and quadrature components at five frequencies. Two vertical coaxial-coil pairs operated at 1121 (1000) and 5491 (5500) Hz while three horizontal coplanar-coil pairs operated at 877 (900), 7116 (7200), and 55,900 (56,000) Hz. The EM data were sampled at 0.1 second intervals. The EM system responds to bedrock conductors, conductive overburden, and cultural sources. The EM inphase and quadrature data were drift corrected using base level data collected at high altitude (areas of no signal). Along-line filters are applied to the data to remove spheric spikes. The data were inspected for variations in phase, and a phase correction was applied to the data if necessary. Apparent resistivities were then calculated from the inphase and quadrature data for all frequencies based on a pseudo-layer half-space model. Manual leveling of the inphase and quadrature of each coil pair, based on the resistivity data and comparisons to the data from the other frequencies, was performed. Automated micro-leveling is carried out in areas of low signal. The EM data were interpolated onto a regular 80-m grid using a modified Akima (1970) technique. The resulting grids were subjected to a 3x3 Hanning filter and resampled to a 25-m cell size before contouring and map production.

    Data sources used in this process:

    • Akima, 1970

    Date: 2009 (process 4 of 5)
    To produce the digital elevation/terrain model, the GPS-Z data were differentially corrected (GPSZ), and the ALTRAD_BIRD data were filtered using a 13 median filter, followed by a 13 Hanning filter. Both the GPSZ and ALTRAD_BIRD data were then checked for spikes, which were removed manually. The corrected altimeter was then subtracted from the GPSZ data to produce profiles of the height above mean sea level along the survey lines. The data were manually leveled to remove any errors between lines. After all leveling, the data were DC shifted to match the local maps, in this case, NAD27. The 80-m DEM grid was then resampled to a 25-m cell size to produce the DEM grid contained in this publication.

    Date: 2009 (process 5 of 5)
    The HPGL2 files were created with HP Designjet 5000 printer driver v5.32 and plot on some plotters, but not all plotters correctly. The Adobe Acrobat format files were created with Adobe Acrobat Distiller 9.0 from Postscript files.

  3. What similar or related data should the user be aware of?


How reliable are the data; what problems remain in the data set?

  1. How well have the observations been checked?

    Geophysical data were acquired during an airborne survey. The magnetometer used had a sensitivity of 0.01 nT. Resistivity sensitivity varies among the different frequencies from 0.06 ppm to 0.30 ppm. Survey contracts specified the conditions and specifications under which these data were collected. Altimeter, heading, lag, and frequent EM calibrations were done. More information will be available in the project report to be published fall 2009.

  2. How accurate are the geographic locations?

    The helicopter position was derived every 0.5 seconds using post-flight differential positioning to an accuracy of better than 1 m.

  3. How accurate are the heights or depths?

    The radar altimeter ('ALTRAD_BIRD') had a stated resolution of 0.3 meter, and an accuracy better than 10% of the flying height, i.e. better or equal to 3 meters for this survey. The ALTRAD_BIRD value may be erroneous in areas of heavy tree cover, where the altimeter reflects the distance to the tree canopy rather than the ground.

  4. Where are the gaps in the data? What is missing?

    The database includes files that contain raw and processed aeromagnetic electromagnetic, altimetry, and locational data for the survey area. Areas with no data for a given channel are flagged with the dummy variable (*). These represent 1) sampling differences, e.g., most sampling was 10 samples per second, but the diurnal_filt channel was sampled once per second; 2) magnetic lag shift at the end of a line, and spikes and dropouts in the magnetic reading; and 3) resistivity and depth values that are not calculated because flying height was too high to produce meaningful calculations. The linedata file includes 48 channels (not including flight line number) for each of the 221 flight lines. A total of 1,357090 data locations are included. The channels are listed below showing number of data points filled with data and those filled with dummies.

    Except for the 4 missing mag_raw values, the missing mag_lag, mag_diu, mar_rmi, and magigrf are due to lag correction; these locations are outside of the contracted survey bounds. Missing values in the apparent resistivity (res56k, res7200, and res900) and associated calculated 'depth' (dep56k, dep7200, and dep900) are due to calculations being meaningless, generally caused by increase in altitude.

  5. How consistent are the relationships among the observations, including topology?

    Data for this survey were collected by a single subcontractor (Fugro Airborne Surveys) who was responsible for collecting and processing the data. All the data were collected with the same instruments (magnetometers, electromagnetic bird and sensors, altimeters, and navigational system). Fugro's internal project reference number for the Slate Creek-Slana River survey is '08046'and their internal media reference number for this publication (v 1.0) is 'CDVD00387'.
