 EM methods and the Workshop

   Electromagnetic (EM) methods are playing increasingly important role in studying various aspects of the planet Earth. Major applications include tectonic studies; exploration for hydrocarbons, minerals, and ground water; investigation of seismic and volcanic hazards and their precursors; urban geophysics and environmental monitoring. EM methods are successful in these applications because electrical conductivity is sensitive to subsurface distribution of temperature, and the presence of fluids and mineralized zones. Instrumentation for electromagnetic exploration has developed rapidly in recent years and precise measurements can now be made on the Earth's surface, in bore holes, and from aircraft and satellites. Data processing, inversion and modeling techniques have also progressed significantly in recent years. Laboratory studies of the electrical conductivity of rocks provide an improved understanding of physical, chemical and biological properties and processes within the Earth.

   The bi-annual International Workshop on Electromagnetic (EM) Induction in the Earth is the premier venue for researchers around the world to exchange research results and latest developments in the field of geo-electromagnetism. We have the pleasure of organizing the 19th EM workshop in China in October 23-29,2008. In co-operation with, and under the sponsorship of Working Group I-2 Electromagnetic Induction in the Earth of IAGA (International Association of Geomagnetism and Aeronomy), it will be hosted by Institute of Geology of the China Earthquake Administration and Geo-electromagnetic committee of Chinese Geophysical Society. We invite members of the global EM community to attend the workshop and present their latest results and ideas in the fields listed above.
