    The Western Scheldt is being deepened to give larger ships better access to the port of Antwerp. Over fifty wrecks and other obstacles have been removed from the main channel. Magnetometry was one of several surveying techniques deployed to determine the exact position and depth of the wrecks to be removed and as a final check after the wreck removal operation. In order to get the best positioning results an algorithm was developed to invert the magnetometry measurements.
