On 25.4.2017, an article by Dr. Uri Schattner (University of Haifa) was published in AGU newspaper EOS, about a joint magnetic study with the Geological Survey of Israel researchers Dr. Vladimir Lechovsky, Dr. Amit Segev and Dr. Michael Rybakov. The team developed a new method for ground magnetic measurements, using a mountain bike. The new method is up to 10 times more efficient than traditional measurements. To-date the team measured an are of 3000 km^2. The project aims at mapping subsurface magnetic bodies (mostly basaltic), and deducing the location of subsurface faulting.
