Earth's mantle conductivity structure estimation at Panagurishte observatory region by magnetovatiational data

The regional magneto-variational sounding method (aka Z/H method) was used for estimation of the Earth's mantle conductivity model at the Panagurishte (PAG) observatory region. A magneto-variational transfer function is calculated on the base of the relationship of vertical to horizontal geomagnetic field spectra components recorded on the Earth surface and priori assumptions about a field source structure. Inversions of the transfer function allow to obtain the one dimensional conductivity model.
