Are you interested in learning how to use magnetotellurics (MT) to study 
a range of Earth systems at different scales? If so, this is your 
chance! We encourage you to apply to our short course this fall that 
will cover a smorgasbord of topics related to doing science with MT. The 
course program will span everything from theory and instrumentation to 
data processing software and the tips and tools for analysis, modeling, 
and interpretation. This event is geared towards the academic research 
community, with no prior experience with MT needed!

Staff from NSF’s SAGE facility at IRIS and New Mexico Tech University, 
and supported by expert instructors from the MT research community, will 
host a 4.5 day course at the PASSCAL Instrument Center on the NMT campus 
in Socorro, New Mexico. We are planning a hands-on experience with the 
state-of-the-art MT instruments managed by the PIC and the evolving 
landscape of software tools for developing research products with MT 
datasets. A generalized agenda is available now, with further detail and 
more information about the short course in general to be added in the 
coming weeks.

We welcome participants from a variety of backgrounds and career stages 
(graduate student and beyond), and are especially keen to engage 
potential future users of PASSCAL facility MT instruments. Course 
enrollment will be capped at around 15 attendees. The financial support 
policy for participants is being finalized, but we expect to cover most 
or all expenses related to domestic travel, room, and board for 
attendees who are either currently based at a U.S. academic institution 
or are a U.S. citizen working temporarily outside the U.S. Please apply 
here by September 7th: 

Selected participants will be notified by September 16th. Please contact 
Justin Sweet (justin.sweet at or Andy Frassetto 
(andy.frassetto at if you have any questions.
