The National Geoelectromagnetic Facility is operated at Oregon State University on behalf of the US EM community and its international collaborators. In addition to providing access to three EM instruments pools (the NGF ultra wide-band pool, the EarthScope long-period MT pool, the open access long-period MT pool), NGF personnel also carry out their own research in electromagnetic induction and related areas.
The NGF's Education and Outreach efforts include providing training in the theory and practical application of EM methods in the Earth Sciences, and through internships and research experiences for students.
Student participants from Oregon State University work with the NGF through the "Increasing Diversity in the Earth Sciences" Program, and those from other institutions through the National Science Foundation Research Experience for Undergraduates Program.
The NGF works closely with other investigators at Oregon State, who with the personnel of the NGF, form the EM research group within the College of Earth, Ocean and Atmospheric Sciences.
