magnetotellurics

[mag‚ned·ō·tə′lür·iks]
(geophysics)
A geophysical exploration technique that measures natural electromagnetic fields to image subsurface electrical resistivity, providing information about the earth's interior composition and structure since naturally occurring rocks and minerals exhibit a broad range of electrical resistivities.
