Title: Geophysical Inversion Tutorials and Workflows
Url: http://www.eos.ubc.ca/research/ubcgif/resources/tutorials.html
Publisher: University of British Columbia. Dept. of Earth and Ocean Sciences
 Description: Geophysical inversion is deriving the structure of the Earth's subsurface from data collected at the surface, using a formal 'inversion' algorithm that creates a subsurface model structure directly from the surface observations. This portal provides links to introductory articles, online tutorials, and workflows for use in geoscience tasks such as mineral exploration, geotechnical or environmental engineering. The tutorials introduce basic concepts, explain how inversion works, and include applets for modeling linear inversion and magnetic dipoles. The workflows section includes procedures for inverting DC resistivity survey data to obtain 2-dimensional models of subsurface electrical conductivity and for inverting magnetic (or gravity) survey data to obtain 3-dimensional models of subsurface magnetic susceptibility (or density) distributions. There are also links to brief summaries on survey methods, geophysical models, and a seven-step framework for carrying out geophysical surveys.
