Progress in the past three decades in geophysical data processing and interpretation techniques was particularly focused in the field of aero-geophysics. The present study is to demonstrate the application of some of these techniques, including Analytic Signal, Located Euler Deconvolution, Standard Euler Deconvolution, and 2D inverse modelling, to help in enhancing and interpreting the archeo-magnetic measurements. A high-resolution total magnetic field survey was conducted at the ancient city… 
Usefulness of electrical and magnetic methods in finding buried structure of the Alabanda Ancient Cistern in Çine Town, Aydın City, Turkey
In this paper, the Electrical Resistivity Tomography and magnetic methods, including Tilt Angle and Euler Deconvolution, have been used in a comperative manner to determine the lineaments and depths
Morphotectonic controls of groundwater flow regime and relating environmental impacts in Northwest Sinai, Egypt
The frequent appearance of some hydro-environmental hazard features, such as waterlogging and soil salinization along the susceptible zones at Northwest Sinai area (NWSA), has put serious challenges
Archaeology and Geophysics: Invincible Couple
Today, there is almost no new archaeological discovery in which geophysical investigation tools do not play a key role. In fact, looking onto the past century, one could argue that geophysics, in a
Constraining Euler Deconvolution Solutions Through Combined Tilt Derivative Filters
Local phase filters as the tilt derivative (TDR) and the horizontal tilt derivative (TDX) are extensively used to interpret magnetic data. We use two combinations of these filters, namely TDR − TDX


Late Bronze Age paleogeography along the ancient Ways of Horus in Northwest Sinai, Egypt
The northwest Sinai contained the eastern frontier of New Kingdom Egypt during the Late Bronze Age. The ancient Pelusaic branch of the Nile Delta influenced the environmental setting of this region
Advantages to Using the Pseudogravity Transformation to Aid Edge Detection of Total Field Archaeomagnetic Datasets
It is demonstrated that when derivative-based methods are applied directly to total-field data, the high-wavenumber components of the data are amplified, making datasets difficult to interpret and often proving less useful than the total- field dataset alone.
Beyond image analysis in processing archaeomagnetic geophysical data: case studies of chamber tombs with dromos.
We analysed the effectiveness of three methods for interpreting magnetic maps in the third dimension, i.e. the depth. The possible synergies among the information obtained by each method have also
Pelusium, an Ancient Port Fortress on Egypt's Nile Delta Coast: Its Evolving Environmental Setting from Foundation to Demise
Abstract This study documents the evolution of the coastal site on which an ancient port fortress, Pelusium, was positioned in the NE corner of Egypt's Nile Delta. Focus is on the stratigraphy,

An Integrated Approach for Measuring and Processing Geophysical Data for the Detection of Unexploded Ordnance
Land and water borne electromagnetic and magnetic surveys were performed near the old Lake Erie Ordnance depot in Ohio. The purpose of the study was to determine the presence and subsurface density
Depth Estimation of 2-D Magnetic Anomalous Sources by Using Euler Deconvolution Method
Euler deconvolution method is the method of depth estimation which is best suited for anomalies caused by isolating and multiple anomalous sources. In the present study, algorithmic programs based on
Magnetic interpretation in three dimensions using Euler deconvolution
Magnetic‐survey data in grid form may be interpreted rapidly for source positions and depths by deconvolution using Euler’s homogeneity relation. The method employs gradients, either measured or
Geophysical surveying in Egypt: periodic report for 2007-2008
Recent research in Egypt has demonstrated pointedly the magnetic method’s uses both in the early recognition of a site prior to full-scale excavations and in data collection for better planning of
An Introduction to Applied and Environmental Geophysics
The book covers a range of applications including mineral, hydrocarbon and groundwater exploration, and emphasises the use of geophysics in civil engineering and in environmental investigations.
