New perspectives of continental Magnetic and Magnetotelluric studies in Africa in cooperation with CRAAG in Algeria
There is a set of magnetic observatories distributed in Africa starting from Hermanus in South Africa in the south to Misallat in Egypt in the north and from Misallat in the east to Tamanrasset in the west. New studies are going in frame of cooperation between Egypt and African countries to share the data of observatories in global studies of magnetospheric variations. This would lead to improved abilities to study the differential onset of magnetic storms in Africa by comparing Observatories of common longitudes. On the other hand observatories located at same latitudes would provide information simulating time variation of magnetic events by using simultaneous records at different longitudes and equal latitudes.
Moreover, Magnetotelluric measurements provide information about the earth’s crust down to its lower boundary. By implementing magnetotelluricinstruments regional crustal maps can be constructed for the depth to the lower boundary, sedimentary basins, oil bearing location as well as ground water monitoring for agricultural development in the continent. Results of preliminary tests between Egypt and Algeria is presented as an Example
