It was good to talk to you today. Thanks for the information on the G-882. I think at this time I will need to wait until at least the fall to think about getting a second G-882. I started in the 70's doing survey work and have used at least 5 different type magnetometers. The Geometrics G-882 is by far the best. On one job I did a few years ago, I was able to determine quarter gamma targets with the cesium magnetometer.
In 1995 we used a Geometrics 866 proton magnetometer to locate the first submarine to sink a warship the H L Hunley (ca 1864); by 1997 we had moved up to the G-881 cesium magnetometer. We first used one on the National Underwater and Marine Agency (NUMA) search in Pass Cavallo Channel, Texas. Later we moved up to the G-882, when we needed (by contract) to keep the mag a given distance from the bottom. We were able to record the depth, produce a contour map to show we had met the contract altitude requirements and were able to detect quarter gamma targets. From what I have seen this is the best magnetometer available bar none.
