The Tellus airborne geophysical survey of Northern Ireland was conducted over a two year period. Measurements from a fixed-wing aircraft operating at 56 m include magnetic (gradiometer), radiometric and frequency-domain electromagnetic. The survey comprises over 80,000 line-km of coverage and was completed in two phases (2005 and 2006). The large geographical scale and two year duration have combined to raise interesting questions regarding data processing and seasonal adjustments. The radiometric and electromagnetic data sets are completely new for N.Ireland, whereas the magnetic data set is significantly better than the existing one. The preliminary results have excited the interest of the planning, mineral and environmental communities.
