Main Article Content
The first systematic collection of magnetotelluric, magnetovariational and frequency sounding results for the Baltic Shield is presented. The great variations in data processing and interpretation methodology make it difficult to present any unified summary of the existing results. Conductive regions in the crust occur in all parts of the shield; sometimes in connection with schist zones, variations in bedrock structure and composition, and sometimes as apparent conductive layering in the depth range 15-25 km. The extent of this layer, as well as the conductive layer at asthenospheric depths in the northern parts of the shield, cannot yet be established. The usefulness of combining electromagnetic and other geophysical data is indicated by the example from central Finland, where deep seismic sounding results seem to be able to explain long-period anisotropies of magnetotelluric sounding curves.

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...)
