Magnetometer array studies in Finland - determination of single station transfer functions
Main Article Content
In 1981 and 1982 four arrays of 30 or 31 magnetometers were operated on the Baltic Shield in central and south-eastern Finland to measure the natural magnetic field variations. These measurements were used to deduce some information about the lateral variation of the electrical conductivity within the Earth's crust. The stations were situated between latitudes 56° and 64° geomagnetic north. As substorms often extend over this area, most magnetic disturbance events have strong external spatial gradients and are not suitable for determining the electrical conductivity distribution inside the Earth. Some magnetic disturbance events with only smooth external spatial gradients could be selected and used for further analysis. For 11 of these events (2–6 h long), the horizontal spatial wavenumber k has been calculated. The product of the wavenumber k and the inductive scale length C was then used as an acceptance criterion and as a weighting function in the calculation of single station transfer functions. Most of the data were not acceptable for the criterion k · |C| < 0.3 for periods longer than 500 s. Because of the small number of acceptable data the statistical significance was not sufficient for all sites. Despite these problems induction vectors and conducted hypothetical vertical field maps could be used to locate conductivity anomalies. Intensive induction was found in three zones in the area under investigation.

This journal is one of a handful of scholarly journals that publish original scientific works under CC BY-NC-ND 4.0 - the only Creative Commons license affording the authors' intellectual property absolute worldwide protection.
Journal of Geophysics is published under the scholar-publishers model, meaning authors do not surrender their copyright to us. Instead, and unlike corporate publishers like Elsevier or Springer Nature that resell copyright to third-parties for up to $80,000 (per paper, per transaction!), the Journal of Geophysics authors share copyright equally with this journal.
Therefore, all the proceeds from reselling copyright to third parties get shared to equal parts (50% to the journal, 50% to the lead author). Under the Berne Convention, this protection is an inheritable right that lasts for as long as the rightsholder lives + 50 years.
By submitting to this journal, the lead author, on behalf of all co-authors, grants permission to this journal to represent all co-authors in negotiating copyright sales and collecting proceeds. The lead author should negotiate with his/her co-authors the modalities of distributing the lead author's portion of the proceeds. Usually, this is per pre-agreed percentage of each co-author's contribution to creating the copyrighted work. (more...)
