Lemma 15.96.8. Let $A$ be a normal domain with fraction field $K$. Let $M/L/K$ be a tower of (possibly infinite) Galois extensions of $K$. Let $H = \text{Gal}(M/K)$ and $G = \text{Gal}(L/K)$ and let $C$ and $B$ be the integral closure of $A$ in $M$ and $L$. Let $\mathfrak r \subset C$ and $\mathfrak q = B \cap \mathfrak r$. Set $D_\mathfrak r = \{ \tau \in H \mid \tau (\mathfrak r) = \mathfrak r\} $ and $I_\mathfrak r = \{ \tau \in D_\mathfrak r \mid \tau \bmod \mathfrak r = \text{id}_{\kappa (\mathfrak r)}\} $ and similarly for $D_\mathfrak q$ and $I_\mathfrak q$. Under the map $H \to G$ the induced maps $D_\mathfrak r \to D_\mathfrak q$ and $I_\mathfrak r \to I_\mathfrak q$ are surjective.

**Proof.**
Let $\sigma \in D_\mathfrak q$. Pick $\tau \in H$ mapping to $\sigma $. This is possible by Fields, Lemma 9.22.2. Then $\tau (\mathfrak r)$ and $\mathfrak r$ both lie over $\mathfrak q$. Hence by Lemma 15.96.7 there exists a $\sigma ' \in \text{Gal}(M/L)$ with $\sigma '(\tau (\mathfrak r)) = \mathfrak r$. Hence $\sigma '\tau \in D_\mathfrak r$ maps to $\sigma $. The case of inertia groups is proved in exactly the same way using surjectivity onto automorphism groups.
$\square$
