A geophysics project in which electrical anomaly structure underground is studied theoretically. The lateral gradients in electric conductivity underground can be detected by using a single magnetograph. Theoretical results of such detection are usually expressed as induction arrows, which are complex numbers. In this project, numerical models are being used to investigate the behaviour of these real and imaginary 'induction arrows', with the aim to study earth-quake prediction eventually.
