Efficient Computational tools for Magnetic Reconstruction and Image Decomposition


TerraNotes Ltd is a geoscience company based in Edmonton, Alberta. TerraNotes has developed or improved 75 proprietary geophysical techniques to extract important information from geophysical datasets. With the current advanced techniques in making use of airborne surveys, the exploration industry can rapidly and effectively obtain magnetic data which cover very large regions and remote areas. In the present project, efficient computational tools will be developed to reconstruct geophysical parameters utilizing the airborne magnetic data, and new image decomposition software using wavelet-based techniques will be implemented. The developed numerical programs will enhance TerraNotes’ technologies integrating geophysical and geological data to extract important information and features which are of practical applications to the exploration industry in Canada.
