The use of transient electromagnetic (TEM) methods is increasing throughout the world because of their success in finding conductive anomalies in regions previously thought inappropriate for EM techniques. Most TEM systems now in use (SIROTEM UTEM, Crone Pulse EM, etc.) employ voltage measurements, i.e., measurements of the time derivative of the magnetic field. However, the success of SQUID based receiving systems in many fields has led research organizations (such as the Bureau of Mineral Resources, Australia) to investigate the use of SQUIDs in TEM systems to obtain direct measurements of the magnetic field.
