Ural Scientists Look for Magnetic Anomalies by Impact Point of Chelyabinsk Meteorite

Scientists have made a magnet map of the area of Lake Tchebarkul, where Chelyabinsk meteorite impacted.

      The new map will enable the Russian researchers to find out if there are still any large fragments of the meteorite left in the lake bed.

      Vladimir Sapunov, the head of the quantum magnetometry laboratory at the Ural Federal University reported about it.

      The university staff have recently returned from the expedition to Lake Tchebarkul. Scientists were engaged in studying the anomalies of the lake adjacent areas in order to find remaining meteorite fragments in Lake Tchebarkul. This is when the updated magnet map was made.

      The maps made three years ago, when the meteorite was removed from the lake show that there is anomaly. The anomaly can be accounted for by the assumed presence of 500 kg of meteoric substance more in the lake.
