Course Content

The Gravity and Magnetics Committee jointly with the Near Surface Technical Section and the Mining Committee call for papers for a workshop scheduled for two half-days and focusing on magnetic methods in memory of a potential-field pioneer, Afif Saad. Workshop organizers welcome contributions from academia, industry, and government organizations that emphasize various applications of the magnetic method to a wide range of scientific and applied problems. Students and early- and mid-career participants who are willing to explore new career directions are particularly encouraged to participate.
