  journal={Archives of Applied Science Research},
An aeromagnetic study of the Maiduguri – Dikwa depression in northeastern Nigeria has been carried out to establish its main shallow crustal structural features. The area is intensely fractured with major fractures trending in NE-SW direction. Spectral analysis and 2.0 D modeling of four profiles selected from the residual anomaly map provide depths to basement of 2.82, 3.41, 2.41 and 2.56 km. These depths constrain the magnetic models along the profiles, which indicate that the sedimentary…
