Studies on Electromagnetic Induction in the Earth: Recent advances

Edited by: Weerachai Siripunvaraporn, Paul A Bedrosian, Yuguo Li, Prasanta Patro, Klaus Spitzer, Hiroaki Toh

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.

    Electrical conductivity of old oceanic mantle in the northwestern Pacific I: 1-D profiles suggesting differences in thermal structure not predictable from a plate cooling model

    Seafloor magnetotelluric (MT) experiments were recently conducted in two areas of the northwestern Pacific to investigate the nature of the old oceanic upper mantle. The areas are far from any tectonic activit...

    Electrical conductivity of a locked fault: investigation of the Ganos segment of the North Anatolian Fault using three-dimensional magnetotellurics

    This study attempts to reveal the fault zone characteristics of the locked Ganos Fault based on electrical resistivity studies including audio-frequency (AMT: 10,400–1 Hz) and wide-band (MT: 360–0.000538 Hz) m...

    Effect of a huge crustal conductivity anomaly on the H-component of geomagnetic variations recorded in central South America

    We describe here an analysis of the H-component of the geomagnetic field recorded in several temporary stations operating simultaneously in the central–eastern region of Brazil during nighttime pulsation even...
