Resolution No.4 (1985): International laboratory for numerical electromagnetic modelling

IAGA, recognising the importance of advanced and reliable interpretation of electromagnetic (EM) measurements for a better understanding of the structure, composition and tectonic development of the Earth, and noting the difficulties in developing reliable and effective computer programs for data processing, modelling and interpretation purposes and the lack of appropriate computing facilities in many institutions, endorses every effort, such as the creation of the International Laboratory of Numerical Electromagnetic Modelling (ILONEM), to provide means for developing, testing and comparing reliable programs and to provide computing and modelling services to scientists, especially those in developing countries.
