Magnetic and Geodetic Investigations of the Crust and Mantle of Earth and Other Planetary Bodies

Session ID#: 25698

Session Description:
Magnetic and gravity studies are among the few investigations that can be carried out from space ans which give us insight into the deeper crust and, in the case of gravity, the mantle of a terrestrial planet or moon. Surface or aerial measurements resolve shorter length-scales which are unobtainable from orbit, making their joint use and individual interpretation difficult. Both the gravitational and the magnetic field have related properties and are therefore amenable to similar techniques for analysis. Their results convey information about complementing physical properties, rendering their co-interpretation highly beneficial. In this session we invite contributions that use gravitational and/or magnetic data collected from space, the air, or from the surface, to study the structure and history of Earth or other terrestrial planets and moons, or contributions that present methods to analyze magnetic and/or gravitational data on a global, regional, or local scale.
