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 (former Working Group I.2) has organized for over four 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.
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 ICSU (International Council for Science). 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.
