Short summary
In this work we aim to interpret the extended magnetic low visible at satellite altitudes above central Europe by performing a joint analysis of magnetic field and total gradient intensity maps at low and high altitudes. Here we demonstrate that such a magnetic anomaly is mainly a result of the contrast between two crustal platforms differing strongly in geological and magnetic properties. Synthetic model tests have been created to support our modeling.
