Not extinct yet: innovations in frequency domain HEM triggered by sea ice studies 
Andreas A. Pfaffhuber and Stefan Hendricks

Operational use of frequency domain HEM for sea ice thickness mapping was the driving force for developing new purpose-designed systems. We present improvements in decreasing noise levels by one to two orders of magnitude, and implemented control signals to eliminate system drift. Ground tests and airborne field data confirmed the achievement of these goals.

Modelling an arbitrarily oriented magnetic dipole over a homogeneous half-space for a rapid topographic correction of airborne EM data 
Julien Guillemoteau, Pascal Sailhac and Mickael Behaegel

In mountainous areas, the airborne electromagnetic system can be at an angle with regard to the ground. We analyse how the data and the eddy current are affected in such a context. We also suggest a simple correction for the data and for the sensitivity function that reduces topography effects.

New developments in AEM discrete conductor modelling and inversion 
Marc A. Vallée

In the last 20 years, sphere and plate models have been integrated in parametric inversion programs which are used today for interactive interpretation of airborne electromagnetic surveys on powerful workstations. Different problems encountered in the implementation and application of these models are discussed and a case history from Abitibi, Canada, is presented.

Airborne electromagnetic modelling options and their consequences in target definition 
Alan Yusen Ley-Cooper, Andrea Viezzoli, Julien Guillemoteau, Giulio Vignoli, James Macnae, Leif Cox and Tim Munday

Given the range of geological conditions under which airborne EM surveys are conducted, there is an expectation that 2D and 3D methods used to extract models of geological significance would be favoured over 1D inversion and transforms. We analyse data from the Musgrave province, South Australia, used for mineral and for hydro-geological prospecting.

MULTIPULSE – high resolution and high power in one TDEM system 
Tianyou Chen, Greg Hodges and Philip Miles

The MULTIPULSE technology airborne TEM system transmits a high power pulse and low power pulse(s) (trapezoid or square) within a half-cycle. The high power pulse ensures good depth of exploration and the low power pulse allows higher near-surface resolution and better sensitivity to weak conductors as confirmed by field results.

Extending the range of time constants recorded by the SPECTREM AEM system 
Peter B. Leggatt

The Spectrem AEM transmitter has no off-time; secondary signals are recorded at the same time as the transmitter primary. By assuming the secondaries have decayed away by the last window, the signal value is used as an estimate of the primary. The result is underestimation of the secondary amplitudes if the target is highly conductive. This paper describes a method to compute a better estimate of the primary amplitude.

Remote remanence estimation (RRE) 
David A. Pratt, K. Blair McKenzie and Tony S. White

The resultant magnetisation vector of a compact magnetic source can be obtained through simultaneous inversion for geometry and magnetisation. The resultant magnetisation vector and induced field vector lie on a plane that intersects the transformed apparent polar wander path to provide estimates for magnetic remanence, susceptibility and age.

Modelling the superparamagnetic response of AEM data 
Daniel Sattel and Paul Mutton

VTEM data flown at different system elevations across a known sulphide body and surface cover with elevated superparamagnetic (SPM) properties were analysed. The results indicate that SPM responses can be distinguished from deep conductor responses if the vertical AEM gradient is measured, with EM sensors being offset vertically by 2–40 m.

The analysis of ZTEM data across the Humble magnetic anomaly, Alaska 
Daniel Sattel and Ken Witherly

ZTEM data acquired across a magnetic anomaly of almost 30 000 nT were analysed for the presence of a magnetic gradient response and the effects from elevated magnetic susceptibilities. Modelling results indicate distortions in the conductivity structure recovered by 3D inversion when elevated magnetic susceptibility values are ignored during the inversion.

Geoffrey Peters, Gregory Street, Ivor Kahimise and David Hutchins

A regional scale low-cost TEMPEST208 survey in north-east Namibia has provided a geo-electric map of the area, including an indication of Kalahari cover thickness. While there are limitations in terms of detail and depth penetration, the results will assist explorers in selecting areas of shallow cover to reduce costs.

Using the in-line component for fixed-wing EM 1D inversion 
Adam Smiarowski

In conductive areas, the in-line component of an offset transmitter–receiver EM system can be more sensitive to the near-surface than the vertical component. Using estimated noise levels, this paper calculates the expected uncertainty on the inverted parameters of a bathymetry model and compares this to inversion results from field data.

Esben Auken, Anders Vest Christiansen, Casper Kirkegaard, Gianluca Fiandaca, Cyril Schamper, Ahmad Ali Behroozmand, Andrew Binley, Emil Nielsen, Flemming Effersø, Niels Bøie Christensen, Kurt Sørensen, Nikolaj Foged and Giulio Vignoli

We present an overview of a mature and general algorithm for inversion of most electromagnetic and geoelectrical data, ground-based and airborne. The implementation uses a 1D formulation for electromagnetics and MRS responses, geoelectric responses are 1D and 2D, and the 3D sheet’s response implements an overburden of varying thickness and resistivity.

Assuming without evidence that magnetic sources are magnetised parallel to the geomagnetic field can seriously mislead interpretation and can result in drillholes missing their targets. This paper reviews methods that are available for estimating the natural remanent magnetisation and total magnetisation of magnetic sources, noting the strengths and weaknesses of each approach.

Niels B. Christensen and Ken Lawrie

We analyse and compare the resolution improvement that can be obtained from including x-component data in the inversion of AEM data from the SkyTEM and TEMPEST systems. Except for the resistivity of the bottom layer, the SkyTEM system, even without including x-component data, has the better resolution of the parameters of the analysed models.

We have studied the concept of apparent P-wave dispersion and its implications in shallow, moderately consolidated to unconsolidated sandstones. Although quantitative results of apparent P-wave dispersion were difficult to obtain from the field data, it is reasonably clear that small-scale structures are significant factors in determining variations in velocity dispersion.

An adaptive smoothing regularisation method for full waveform inversion is proposed. The proposed regularisation method is designed using the local slope and implemented in the form of a preconditioning filter for pure-gradient-based full waveform inversion.

In this paper, a memoryless quasi-Newton (MLQN) method is applied in full waveform inversion to invert velocity from surface seismic data for the first time. This method can attain acceptable results with low computation cost and small memory storage requirements. Synthetic model tests show that the MLQN method is feasible and reliable.

Prediction and removal of rotation noise in airborne EM systems 
blank image
Terence Kratzer and James Macnae
pp. 147-153

Limitations to conductive target detection in AEM systems come from the high noise encountered at low base frequencies, caused by rotations of vector magnetic field sensors in the Earth’s magnetic field. We use rotation-rate sensors to predict and subtract the rotation noise from rigidly coupled ARMIT magnetic field sensors.

James Shadlow
pp. 154-163

Analysing seismic data for direct hydrocarbon indicators (DHIs) and amplitude variation with offset (AVO) can be instrumental in identifying the presence of hydrocarbons. Inversion converts seismic data into acoustic impedance, which can be used to estimate geological properties. This paper reviews the literature and commonly used techniques for seismic amplitude analysis.
