   Geofyzikální profil přes zlomový systém Bogd v oblasti Čandmanské ruptury, přinesl data o stavbě struktury.
Abstract (in english)
   The internal structure of the Bogd fault, which is one of the largest intra-continental faults in Asia, was studied using the geophysical methods of very low frequencies, vertical electrical sounding and induced olarization vertical sounding.The geophysical profile was situated on the eastern foothill of the Chandman Khayrkhan Uul (SW Mongolia) near the branching of the Chandman rupture, recently seismically active western part of the Bogd fault zone. Geophysical measurements confirmed several sub-parallel faults that are steeply dipping to the south. An imbricated structure inside the fault zone and anastomosing trends of mylonitic zones were revealed by the orientation of the low resistivity zones.
