(µT or mcT)
   a common unit of magnetic field intensity equal to 10-6 tesla.
   The unit is widely used to measure the strength of electromagnetic fields generated by powerlines or electronic equipment. By comparison, the strength of the Earth's own magnetic field at the surface is about 50 microteslas. One microtesla equals 0.01 gauss.
