Abstract : Results are given of a magnetotelluric survey of the Irkutsk amphitheater (the southern part of the Siberian Platform) which was undertaken in an effort to clarify the question of which factors influence the magnetic field. Particular attention was given to the nature of the underlying horizon, the specific resistance of the crystalline basement, and the relief of the deep conducting horizon of the upper mantle.
