Omid Bagherpur, Ph.D.

Principal Geophysicist, Metals Exploration, BHP

Talk Abstract:

The magnetic and gravity methods, also known as potential field methods, are among the most widely used—and occasionally misused—techniques in exploration geophysics, favored for their relatively lower costs and the simplicity of conducting surveys. Contrary to common perception, the processes involved in successful data processing, grid analysis, inversion, and data/model interpretation can be quite complex. The suitability of potential field data for geological mapping, or for recovering structures of interest through inversion, can vary significantly depending on the processing steps undertaken, the original survey design, and the availability and type of supplementary information. The primary aim of this presentation is to review key concepts, illustrate examples of interpretation and data processing pitfalls, and introduce best practices and recent advancements in the processing and modeling of gravity and magnetic datasets.
