This paper documents the development of an empirical depth estimation technique applicable to potential field data. The technique is demonstrated by application to synthetic magnetic data generated from bodies with varying properties. Application to a sample field dataset is also documented. The estimates produced by the technique and its various derivatives are compared with Euler results providing a benchmark. The results are encouraging and comparable to those obtained from the 3D (grid) Euler method. Although the robust nature of the technique is illustrated, it requires more development in order to formalise the methodology and to provide a theoretical understanding of the observations.
