asclogodrop2.jpg (8279 bytes)   Bartington MS2D Field Search Loop
. This loop is designed for rapid assessment of the concentration of ferrimagnetic minerals in the top 100 mm (approximately) of the land surface. It is used in studies of slope processes and is a powerful tool in archaeological prospecting, as human habitation leads to an irreversible magnetic enhancement of the soil, mainly as a result of burning.

The MS2D loop can only be operated in conjunction with the MS2 probe handle, which contains additional essential electronics.  This probe handle is also used with the MS2F field probe and is shown on the MS2F page.
