Electromagnetic Resource Exploration Group

Electromagnetic Resource Exploration Group (EMREX) is involved in a wide variety of electromagnetic projects ranging from applied resource exploration to the basic science of induction hazards. Projects include studies of steel borehole casing distortion of electromagnetic data collected for reservoir characterization, marine mineral exploration using transient electromagnetic methods, characterization of powerline noise in airborne electromagnetic surveys, inductive coupling in conventional induced polarization surveys for mineral exploration, effects of magnetic storms on power grids via electromagnetic coupling and the construction of an autonomous robot for geophysical data acquisition.

Current external collaborators and sponsors include Newmont, Shell, the University of Toronto, the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign, Helmholtz-Zentrum für Ozeanforschung Kiel (Geomar) and the United States Geological Survey (USGS).
