Geomagnetic and Geoelectric Department
Geomagnetic and Geoelectric (Applied Geophysics) Department is considered one of the main and effective geophysical departments at National Research Institute of Astronomy and Geophysics as it has a lot of activities that play a vital role in the scientific society. It also has a wide range of aims that has a strong and direct relation with the requirements of the government and the individuals. The department consists of two laboratories; Geomagnetism laboratory and Geoelectric and Geothermal Laboratory.
Geoelectric and Geothermal Laboratory focuses on many targets like groundwater explorations, Geothermal explorations, mining explorations, Archaeological investigations, detection of Geotechnical and Engineering problems and providing reasonable solutions to many of them. Geoelectric and geothermal lab. has the latest geophysical techniques (Electric and Electromagnetic techniques) that can achieve these targets and give accurate results.
Geomagnetic laboratory focuses on many goals such as studying the geomagnetic activities and space weather studies related to magnetic storms, sub storms and geomagnetic pulsations. The Lab operates two geomagnetic observatories record the magnetic field during the 2 hours and responsible for detection of the magnetic storms. In addition to assessment of the subsurface structures and their depths. Also, the paleomagnetism represents one of the main trends in the geomagnetic lab.
