New generation marine magnetotelluric instruments

Five new marine MT instruments were designed and built, along with a matched land instrument for use at a reference station. The instruments are autonomous, microprocessor-controlled units, the core of each being a 3-component magnetometer, a 2-component electrometer, and data acquisition and control circuitry. This assembly has been designed to be cheap, dismountable, light-weight and modular. The system has been successfully been used at sea (see part 7). The instruments are available for viewing at Brest facilities.
