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.
