Field measurements of MS (volume susceptibility) are typically reported in dimensionless units (e.g., [10.sup.-5] (SI units)), whereas laboratory measurements of mass specific susceptibility are reported in mass-based units (e.g., [10.sup.-8] x [m.sup.3] [kg.sup.-1] (SI units)), equivalent to volume susceptibility divided by density [4].
