IAGA Division VI - Electromagnetic Induction in the Earth and Planetary Bodies

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. Division VI (former Working Group I.2) has organized for over four decades a very successful series of biennial electromagnetic induction workshops attended by 250-300 or more scientists, where there is a special focus on the training of students and junior researchers.
