Lithospheric Field

I am working with Nils OIsen (DTU), Tiku Ravat (Univ. Kentucky) and Andy Jackson (ETH Zurich) on high resolution images of the global lithospheric field, developing new satellite data processing methods and inversion methods.  The lithospheric field is generated by magnetization of the crust and upper mantle and can be used to study global-scale tectonic processes.
