The 23rd Electromagnetic Induction Workshop (EMIW 2016)

14 - 20 August 2016, Chiang Mai, Thailand

It was a great experience to attend electromagnetic induction workshop in Chiang Mai Thailand. This workshop is a biennial meeting for electromagnetic geophysicists -scientists, working groups and companies- all around the world. This meeting offers many opportunities to learn, discuss, and exchange ideas of the latest developments in EM geophysics. New networks and relationships with other participants were also established during the workshops that will benefit in the future. During the workshop I learnt many things, for example parallelling of electromagnetic geophysics code using GPU with CUDA (not with CPU), observing the Earth by using electromagnetic signals from the tides and tsunami, some applications of MT method in Asia, and also estimating the transfer function with many different strategies.

My PhD topic is Controlled Source Radiomagnetotellurics (CSRMT) which is a new method in near surface geophysics. During the poster session and the workshops, my supervisor and I discussed our first results of CSRMT measurement in Russia with other participants who were interested in our work. They gave us some valuable insights and ideas which are very useful for our future publications. We will publish our result after we have finished processing our data in full tensor estimation.
