3D Inversion of Magnetotelluric Data Applied to Exploration for Natural Resources

By david satterthwaite • February 18th, 2015

Magnetotellurics (MT) is a geophysical method that uses naturally occurring electric and magnetic fields to map variations in electrical conductivity in the deep Earth. Modelling MT data is computationally intensive, especially the 3D modelling algorithms.<p><p>The Centre for Exploration Targeting has an active programme of MT surveying as part of on-going research on regional mineral prospectivity. more…
