A Fast Imaging Technique Applied to 2D Electrical Resistivity Data

A Fast Imaging Technique Applied to 2D Electrical Resistivity Data | Shallow Geophysics | Scoop.it
Abstract. A new technique is proposed to process 2D apparent resistivity datasets, in order to obtain a fast and contrasted resistivity image, useful for a rapid data check in field or as a starting model to constrain the inversion ...
