Summary

Magnetotelluric soundings give data that can help define the lelectricamagnetic properties of rocks, and with othergeophysical data help define thestructure of the shallow crust where earthquakes occur. The soundingpoints in this cover show where data was collected that was thenmodelled for deep structure (see reference).
