Inria Associate Teams not involved in an Inria International Labs

  • Title: Inverse Magnetization Problems IN GEosciences.

  • International Partner (Institution - Laboratory - Researcher):

    • MIT - Department of Earth, Atmospheric and Planetary Sciences (United States) - Benjamin Weiss

  • Start year: 2013

  • See also: http://www-sop.inria.fr/apics/IMPINGE/

  • The purpose of the associate team IMPINGE is to develop efficient algorithms to recover the magnetization distribution of rock slabs from measurements of the magnetic field above the slab using a SQUID microscope (developed at MIT). The US team also involves a group of Mathematicians at Vanderbilt Univ.

MIT-France seed funding is a competitive collaborative research program ran by the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (Cambridge, Ma, USA). Together with E. Lima and B. Weiss from the Earth and Planetary Sciences dept. at MIT, Apics obtained two-years support from the above-mentioned program to run a project entitled: “Development of Ultra-high Sensitivity Magnetometry for Analyzing Ancient Rock Magnetism”

NSF Grant L. Baratchart, S. Chevillard and J. Leblond are external investigators in the NSF Grant 2015-2018, "Collaborative Research: Computational methods for ultra-high sensitivity magnetometry of geological samples" led by E.B. Saff (Vanderbilt Univ.) and B. Weiss. (MIT).
