The success of the events such as the 24th EM Induction Workshop depends to a significant extent on sponsorship from participants and supporters. Sponsorship went to subside students and early career researchers from around the world for their registration and accommodation.
The Carlsberg Foundation is one of the world’s oldest industrial foundations. Here, ambitious brewing enterprise blossoms side by side with research and support for the finest science, art and culture. The Foundation’s Chairman is not just head of the Carlsberg Foundation, but also Chairman of the Supervisory board of Carlsberg A/S. It has been this way since 1876, when Brewer J.C. Jacobsen established the Carlsberg Foundation.
Founded in 1975 in Toronto, Canada, Phoenix Geophysics is the world leader in onshore electromagnetic (EM) and MT (Magnetotelluric) geophysical instrumentation. Phoenix also maintains a service division for specialized surveys, client training, and equipment testing. Phoenix equipment has been used in approx. 100 countries. In hydrocarbon exploration, MT complements seismic in poor-seismic areas; provides rapid reconnaissance of new basins where seismic is expensive or difficult; and sometimes shows direct hydrocarbon indicators. Phoenix EM/MT are also used in exploration for geothermal, base and precious metals, coal, diamonds, uranium, and some industrial minerals. Engineering uses include dam site studies, railway tunnel planning, and mining hazards prediction (water inrush in coal beds). Research applications include earthquake prediction research and crustal mapping.
Metronix has released the 8th generation of MT data loggers in 2017. One of the outstanding features is the frequency range from 256 kHz down to DC. The LINUX based system records all frequencies continuously using opensource timeseries. The instrument including all sensors are automatically calibrated without user interaction. Data can be sent to your own cloud directly (encrypted transport). All metronix sensors are auto detected by the system and the calibration data is loaded into the timeseries. For the scientist and expert users this flexibility is a must and allows to make a competitive data processing with all available MT codes.
KMS Technologies (together with its subsidiary LEMI) provide Electromagnetic (EM) hardware, software and complete system solutions covering acquisition systems for microseismics, magnetotellurics & CSEM (up to 480 KHz): transmitter, fluxgate magnetometers, induction coil magnetometers and electrodes. KMS-820 MT system recently added NOISE FREE web access for continuous data streaming via internet connection without any interference to the analogue sensors/parts of the system. Unique in the system is the integration with proprietary fast robust processing, 1D/2D inversions and access to the state of the art 3D inversion which clients can do – worry-free- on our cluster. In addition, we offer custom projects, advisory and services for borehole, land, and marine Electromagnetics, including monitoring.
Nord-West, a Russian leading provider of electromagnetic imaging services, including surveying, data processing and interpretation, was founded in 1995. The company employs about 70 geophysicists and technicians. With headquarters in Moscow Nord-West annually conducts more than 30 large commercial projects worldwide. The areas of experience include (1) regional-scale studies of the Earth crust and upper mantle, (2) sedimentary basin exploration for oil and gas and reservoir characterization; (3) deep water exploration, (4) mineral exploration, (5) geothermal, ecological and environmental studies. Nord-West develops and produces EM software and instrumentation, carries out numerous educational and R&D projects including field training courses for students.
SkyTEM systems do what no other single airborne geophysical system can – map the near surface in high resolution concurrently with accurate measurements to depths approaching 500 m. Engineered to detect subtle geological variations SkyTEM delivers a comprehensive interpretation of near-surface geology and increases confidence in modeling deeper geology. Furthermore, inverted data is available in 48 hours. SkyTEM’s suite of systems satisfies the most challenging mapping needs and offer a wide range of solutions for resource management. SkyTEM systems are designed to detect subtle variations in conductivity/resistivity making it possible to deliver accurate high resolution images of alterations in the earth.
Aarhus GeoSoftware is a leading provider of software for processing and inversion geophysical electromagnetic- and electrical data. We have developed a common platform, Aarhus Workbench, for handling several types of large data sets, where data handling is integrated from raw data to processing, inversion, QC of inversion results and visualization of inversion models on GIS, 3D and PDF. We support processing and inversion for all ground based and airborne TEM and FEM systems and also ERT and IP.
Crystal Globe Geophysical R&S is a Houston based geophysical equipment manufacturer. We have geophysicists, engineers and software developers with many years of experience in oil, gas, mining, and other geophysical exploration fields. We are focusing on research & development, manufacturing of geophysical sensors and equipment, such as proton magnetometers, non-polarized low noise electrodes, geophysical data loggers, ultra-low noise marine system, nodal seismic systems and new seismometer sensors. It developed Aether, a new generation multifunction geophysical acquisition station featuring low noise, low power consumption, flexible channel configuration (up to 14ch), and remote accessibility. CG recently developed nodal seismic stations (1 and 3-axis) with lowest power consumption (about 35mW) in the market and mesh wireless network capability.
