Bartington Instrument's products are used in a number of Geoscience fields of study, assisting activities as varied as long-term earthquake research, climate change investigation, pollution studies and the assessment of erosional processes in geomorphology.

When studying the deep structure of the Earth, Mag-03 sensors are used in Magnetotellurics to determine the conductivity structure of the crust and upper mantle.

These sensors also enable long-term magnetic field measurements in earthquake studies, facilitating the mapping of faults and the determination of their geometry.

Magnetic susceptibility measurements are used in the study of wind-blown dusts and have a role to play in understanding climate change in palaeoclimate studies. They are also useful to detect pollution, especially heavy metal pollution with its high susceptibility.

The Bartington Instruments MS2/MS3 magnetic susceptibility system includes a versatile range of sensors and probes ideal for deep-sea sediment research, field mapping, soil and leaf studies and airborne particle measurements.

In geomorphology, the MS2/MS3 system can supply rapid information about the type of rock from which sediments are derived, assisting with the understanding of erosion processes.

The Mag-01H DI system can be employed as an absolute measurement tool for periodic calibration of magnetic observatory equipment.

The BSS-02B Sonde is used for borehole stratigraphical work in palaeoclimate and palaeoceanographic studies.
