The magnetotelluric (MT) technique has evolved as a tool in difficult exploration problems such as seismic poor record areas (Orange 1989) and in frontier basin regions (Christopherson 1991). Since it is a deep-probing wavefield technique, MT can assist in confirming the presence of deep sedimentary rocks and in providing estimates of the thickness of surface formations and the broad structural features of both sediments and basement.
