Avoidable Euler Errors – the use and abuse of Euler deconvolution applied to potential fields∗

  title={Avoidable Euler Errors – the use and abuse of Euler deconvolution applied to potential fields∗},
  author={Alan B. Reid and J{\"o}rg Ebbing and Susan J. Webb},
Window-based Euler deconvolution is commonly applied to magnetic and sometimes to gravity interpretation problems. For the deconvolution to be geologically meaningful, care must be taken to choose parameters properly. The following proposed process design rules are based partly on mathematical analysis and partly on experience. 1. The interpretation problem must be expressible in terms of simple structures with integer Structural Index (SI) and appropriate to the expected geology and… CONTINUE READING
