Research Consortium: Advanced Computational Methods for Geophysical Electromagnetics Modeling, Inversion and Integration

Electromagnetic (EM) methods are commonly used for geophysical exploration in various applications such as mineral exploration, hydrocarbon detection, management of fresh and salt water and CO2 and reservoir monitoring. While in the past, EM methods suffered from expensive data collection, new systems now collect massive amounts of data over space and time, and new instrumentation allows for higher quality and accuracy of the data. In particular, the research proposed here will enable the processing of large-scale geophysical data and provide exploration companies with additional tools to reduce the risk of exploration.
