Magneto telluric (MT) experiment to detect potentially oil-bearing sediments underneath basalt cover. The experiment is planned to augment existing MT data recorded in 2003 along the FLAR98-10 seismic profile in the framework of the European-funded SIMBA project. Recording low frequency data at selected stations occupied in previous experiment to delineate the base of the geological structure. The project is funded by the Faeroese SINDRI consortium. 7 seafloor electric and magnetic field receivers to be deployed on the seafloor at 7 stations end of July in a 3 day deployment cruise, to be recovered at the end of September 2005, i.e. should have a bottom time of about 2 months.
