  • We present a new application of superconductive magnetic gradiometry to a geophysical problem. Changing stresses in the earth's crust produce magnetic variations through the piezomagnetic effect. Seismic wave stress fluctuations cause magnetic variations measurable by a superconductive gradiometer. Their magnitude depends both on the wave stress and on the ambient stress. Measurements repeated over time can monitor changes in the ambient stress of magnetic strata near earthquake faults… CONTINUE READING
