Description

The presented magnetic dataset were collected above a set of weapons buried at 0.6 m, 1.2 m, and 1.8 m depth while the MATLAB simulation codes were used to estimate the magnetization, length, centre, azimuth and plunge of the buried firearms assuming an anomaly caused by a long magnetic dipole. Datasets and MATLAB scripts are related to the following peer reviewed articles submitted by the contributors for review and publication: 1. K. O. Doro, E. A. Deng, C.-G.
