Resolution No.7 (1963): Recommendations with particular reference to the Upper Mantle Project

The IAGA recommends with particular reference to the Upper Mantle Project:

  1. that in view of the present ambiguity in separating ocean water effects from those produced by deep structures, magnetic observations and recordings at continental margins as well as at sea be encouraged,
  2. that magnetic and magneto-telluric measurements be encouraged in the most recently active tectonic zones, and in particular work on Tertiary rifts, be undertaken by responsible workers in this field, and
  3. that an attempt be made to correlate determinations of deep electric conductivity with the results of heat flow measurements.
