We measure the anisotropy of the magnetic susceptibility (AMS) in order to resolve flow directions of clastic rocks and to determine the strain fields near faults.
The relationship between a small applied magnetic field vector H and the induced magnetization vector M is the magnetic susceptibility. If the magnetic response of a material depends on the orientation of the applied field - it is anisotropic.
We are indebted to Tahar AÏfa, who was our mentor and taught us the tricks of the trade in the early days of the research.
