Resolution No.3 (1985): Support to international magnetotelluric observation projects

IAGA, recognising the success of seismic methods in elucidating structures in the lithosphere, arising from intensive international cooperation with uniform measuring equipment and processing techniques, and anticipating a similar success of electromagnetic induction methods under comparable conditions, recommends funding agencies to support projects associated with the International Lithosphere Program, such as the European Geotraverse Project, to support the creation of large pools of magnetotelluric equipment preferably with uniform specifications and to support projects that work towards standardisation in data exchange.
