Description

Geophysical Potential Fields: Geological and Environmental Applications investigates the similarities and differences of potential geophysical fields, including gravity, magnetics, temperature, resistivity, and self-potential, as well as the influence of noise on these fields. Part of the Computational Geophysics series, this volume provides computational examples and methods for effectively solving geophysical problems in a full cycle manner.

Including both quantitative and qualitative analysis, Geophysical Potential Fields offers different filtering and transformation procedures, integrated analysis, and special interpretation methodologies, and presents a developed 3D algorithm for combined modeling of gravity and magnetic fields in complex environments. The book also includes applications of the unified potential field system, such as studying deep structure, searching hydrocarbon and ore deposits, localizing buried water horizons and rockslide areas, tectono-structural mapping of water basins, and classifying archaeological targets. Including numerous examples from different geological and environmental domains, Geophysical Potential Fields is a unique resource for geophysicists, exploration geologists, archaeologists, and environmental scientists.

Key Features

  • Clearly demonstrates successive stages of five geophysical potential field analysis for different geological and environmental targets both qualitatively and quantitatively
  • Provides a unified system for potential geophysical field analysis, demonstrated by numerous examples of system application from regional scale (investigation of deep structure) to a very detailed scale (archaeological geophysics)
  • Demonstrates possibilities for rapidly and effectively interpreting anomalies, receiving some knowledge of modern wavelet, diffusion maps and informational approach applications in geophysics, and combined gravity-magnetic methodology of 3D modeling
  • Includes text of the Geological Space Field Calculation (GSFC) software intended for 3D combined modeling of gravity and magnetic fields in complex environments

Readership

Geophysicists, exploration geologists, geologists, archaeologists, environmental scientists
