    Thank you for your response, though I would like to tell you that definitely googling it is the first thing I have done, but it doesn't help, because apparently EMU has many different conventions and I'm looking for something specific used for magnetometer sensitivity.

    Magnetometer sensitivity is either measured in Tesla or in Tesla per root Hz [itex]\left(\frac{T}{\sqrt{Hz}}\right)[/itex]. I cannot relate EMU to that at all.

    Best regards.

    well its definitions are given pretty clearly in this table with its relationship to Tesla
    if that doesn't help, then I cannot help you further

    edit: ... that was the first site that actually told me what emu stood for :smile:

    cheers
