Project

Mapping Earth's crustal magnetic field with satellite data

Publisher

Supervisor

Location

Greater Copenhagen area

Geological structures in the Earth's crust are magnetized, which means they produce local anomalies in the geomagnetic field.  By mapping these crustal anomalies information on plate tectonic history and heat flow in the Earth may be extracted.

In this project, the student will develop and test a new data processing scheme to use with geomagnetic data collected by ESA's Swarm satellite mission in order to produce improved global maps of the crustal magnetic field.

In particular, new techniques for identifying and treating disturbed orbits will be implemented and tested.

Technical University of Denmark

For almost two centuries DTU, Technical University of Denmark, has been dedicated to fulfilling the vision of H.C. Ørsted – the father of electromagnetism – who founded the university in 1829 to develop and create value using the natural sciences and the technical sciences to benefit society.


Today, DTU is ranked as one of the foremost technical universities in Europe, continues to set new records in the number of publications, and persistently increases and develops our partnerships with industry, and assignments accomplished by DTU’s public sector consultancy.
