Measurements, data processing and interpretation, potential field theory
This course gets back to potential field basics.
An interpretation is not only based on transforming maps using some general principles or doing some forward modelling and/or data inversion.
Based on existing data, the objective is to understand all the advantages and the weaknesses of the interpretation tools. They are evaluated into three parts: field transforms, forward modelling, and data inversion.
This course is based on a case study necessitating some skills of participants in interpretation of magnetic gravimetric data. The case study serves to illustrate and explain the various interpretation tools and uses theoretical considerations of the theory of the potential.
Data of the case study can be participants data or will be given at the beginning of the course. Participants will make short reports of their interpretations which will be discussed during the course.
No specific requirement for this course that can take place in any meeting room with validated HSE characteristics, in your company premises or elsewhere.
One week (35-40 hours) is the ideal time. The case can be shortened or lengthened according to the request.
The course is designed for professionals (geologists or geophysicists) willing to have a better understanding of interpretation of magnetic and gravimetric data.
There are many ways to acquire, process and interpret data and, often, the contribution of potential field data and their interpretation is undervalued.
Attendees with a general knowledge of magnetic and gravimetric methods and some experience even limited in interpretation.
