Abstract:

The final six years of seventeen years of ONR sponsored research work at MIT in geoelectricity and geomagnetism is reviewed. The specific areas included magnetospheric studies and crustal magnetotelluric studies. The magnetospheric studies involved Alfven wave damping in the plasmasphere and its effect of the ULF background noise spectrum. The magnetotelluric studies included a low frequency magnetotelluric survey of New England and a thin sheet analysis that incorporates the effects of a resistive crust on the telluric fields. A listing of personnel and a bibliography is also included. Author
