Numerical modeling of a novel bucking coil for time-domain electromagnetic geophysics

Geophysical electromagnetic techniques are used to scan the Earth’s subsurface and can be used to help find buried materials of economic, environmental and societal importance. They are especially widely used in mineral exploration. DIAS Geophysical is developing a new geophysical electromagnetic system that will be flown under a helicopter that should be more effective than previous generations of systems. In order to make best use of the system, it is important to reduce the noise at the sensor as much as possible using specialized coils. The work described in this proposal will use computer simulations to characterize the performance of these coils which will allow us to optimize the coil design.
