Chairman P. Pushkarev


The objective of the field seminar is to demonstrate EM equipment, produced both in Russia and abroad, and widely used nowadays by Russian geophysicists for regional, oil and gas, solid minerals, geothermal, groundwater, engineering and permafrost studies. Equipment for the following EM methods will be considered: broadband and audio-frequency magnetotelluric (MT and AMT), controlled-source frequency- and time-domain (FDEM and TEM), direct current resistivity and induced polarization (DC and IP).


The seminar will start with an introductory lecture about the equipment to be displayed, including brief description of technical characteristics and principles of operation. Then participants will be divided into groups, which will in turn visit several demonstration grounds, at which different kinds of equipment will be installed. After that, lectures about data processing and interpretation will be given and case histories will be presented.


Seminar will be held near to the pension at the picturesque beach of the Moscow River.
