Studies on Electromagnetic Induction in the Earth: Recent advances

Earth, Planets and Space welcomes submissions to the special issue on 'Studies on Electromagnetic Induction in the Earth: Recent advances'.

Research into electromagnetic induction of Earth and planetary interiors has increased considerably within the last decade. The 23rd biennial electromagnetic induction workshop (EMIW) held in Chiang Mai, Thailand in August 2016 was a premier event for the international research community to exchange the latest developments in the field of electromagnetic induction. This special issue is intended to promote the activity of this vibrant and growing research community and to foster future interdisciplinary studies within the broader Earth and Planetary sciences. It calls for papers on general contributions presented at the 23rd EMIW. Relevant studies that were not presented in the workshop are also welcome.

Potential topics include electromagnetic induction in the earth with emphasis on the following:

  • instrumentation, sources, and data processing
  • theory, modelling and inversion
  • exploration, monitoring and hazards
  • tectonics, magmatism, geodynamics
  • marine electromagnetism
  • rock and mineral resistivity and anisotropy
  • global and planetary studies
