Electromagnetic Induction in the Earth and Planetary Bodies
Our research activities involve the investigation of all theoretical and practical aspects of the spatial distribution of electrical properties within the Earth's and planetary interiors, and particularly electrical conductivity, and their relationship with physical parameters considered in seismology, rheology, petrology, hydrology, volcanology, etc., Studies are applied to elucidate geological structures and processes ranging from meter to mantle scale.
IAGA Division VI has organized for over five decades a very successful series of biennial ElectroMagnetic Induction Workshops attended by 250-350 or more scientists, where there is a special focus on the training of students and junior researchers.
The 26th International Workshop on Electromagnetic Induction (EMIW2024) will be held in Beppu, Japan, from 7 to 13 September 2024.
IAGA (International Association of Geomagnetism and Aeronomy) is one of eight associations within IUGG (International Union of Geodesy and Geophysics) and IUGG is one of thirty unions within ISC (International Science Council). IUGG is the oldest non-governmental international scientific organization, established in 1919 and dedicated to advancing, promoting, and communicating knowledge of the Earth system, its space environment, and the dynamical processes causing change.
The IUGG amd IAGA echo the Statement on Ukraine published by the International Science Council (ISC) on 28 February 2022 (see here) and express their deep dismay and concerns regarding the military offensives being carried out in Ukraine and warns against the severe outcomes that conflict will have on the research and academic community. IUGG and IAGA oppose any discrimination or harassment of individuals based on factors such as age, citizenship, disability, ethnic origin, gender identity, language, political or other opinion, religion, or sexual orientation. It is the IUGG and IAGA policy to follow the regulations of the ISC on non-discrimination and universality of science.
