At the 3DEM-5 workshop in 2013, we presented a paper entitled "ModEM: developing 3D EM inversion for the masses", outlining our then recent development of a modular system for inversion of EM geophysical data, called ModEM. As promised in that presentation, we made a version of the code that is suitable for 3D modeling and inversion of magnetotelluric data freely available for academic use shortly thereafter. There are now over 250 registered users, of ModEM3DMT from around the globe. To date at least 50 publications cite use of ModEM for 3D inversion of real MT datasets to address diverse problems in applied and basic Earth Science research at a range of scales. Here we present an overview of some of these results, focusing on studies that the authors have been involved in, and are thus most familiar to us.
