Studies on Electromagnetic Induction in the Earth: Recent advances and Future Directions

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

Research into electromagnetic induction of Earth and planetary interiors has increased considerably. The research community has grown beyond the traditional focus of magnetollurics (MT) to include airborne, land, and marine controlled-source electromagnetics (EM); additional growth stems from the public availability of country-wide MT data sets, the recent application of EM methods to studies of geomagnetically-induced currents, and the accelerating development and application of three-dimensional EM methods. The 24th biennial electromagnetic induction workshop held in Helsingør, Denmark in August 2018 was a premier event for the international research community to exchange the latest developments in the field of electromagnetic induction. This special issue intends to promote the activity of this vibrant and growing research community and to foster future interdisciplinary studies within the broader earth and planetary sciences. We call for papers on general contributions presented at the 24th EMIW in addition to relevant studies that were not presented in the workshop.

This special issue covers all disciplines concerning the electromagnetioc induction in the earth including:

  • Instrumentation, Sources and Data processing
  • Theory, Modeling and Inversion
  • Exploration, Monitoring and Hazards
  • Tectonics, Magmatism, Geodynamics
  • Marine EM
  • Rock and Mineral Resistivity, and Anisotropy
  • Global and Planetary Studies

Submission Instructions

Before submitting your manuscript, please ensure you have carefully read the submission guidelines for Earth, Planets and Space. The complete manuscript should be submitted through the Earth, Planets and Space submission system. To ensure that you submit to the correct special issue please select the appropriate special issue in the drop-down menu upon submission. In addition, indicate within your cover letter that you wish your manuscript to be considered as part of the special issue on Studies on Electromagnetic Induction in the Earth: Recent advances and Future Directions. All submissions will undergo rigorous peer review and accepted articles will be published within the journal as a collection.

Deadline for submissions: 30 June 2019
