New e-book: Advances in Gravity and Magnetic Processing and Interpretation

on January 12, 2016 library

The EAGE announced the availability of a new e-book in the EAGE Bookshop: Advances in Gravity and Magnetic Processing and Interpretation written by J. Derek Fairhead.

The book comprehensively covers the role that gravity and magnetic methods play in exploration  and focuses on recent developments of how local phase derivatives are being used in both processing and interpretation.

Advanced processing and interpretation have evolved significantly over the last two decades. The traditional amplitude derivative methods are now augmented by powerful local phase and local wavenumber derivative methods, all of which are used to identify and map structural lineaments as well as providing accurate depth estimations using infinite and finite depth models.

In what one can call the post-Euler era, interpretation methods have evolved from generating clouds of Euler depth solutions to estimating depths of individual magnetic anomalies. Where sedimentary basins are at their deepest, there is often a sparsity of depth solutions but not magnetic data. Transforming the magnetic data into pseudo-gravity now provides a means of mapping the whole basement surface.

The book is based on 40 plus years of of teaching experience, and it draws extensively on collaborative works with Dr Ahmed Salem, other colleagues and research students via publications which are references both within the text and at the end of each section.
