As part of project LITHOPROBE, magnetotelluric data were acquired at 27 sites along a 150km east-west profile in southeastern British Columbia straddling the complex tectonic boundary between ancestral North American rocks and those of the easternmost accreted terranes. These data, named the BC87 dataset, display complex effects due to both three-dimensional induction and galvanic scattering at virtually all scale sizes. The MT data are shown, and the tectonic setting described. Also, seismic and previous EM studies of the region are described. -from Author
