@article{Deidda2019FDEMtoolsAM, title={FDEMtools: a MATLAB package for FDEM data inversion}, author={Gian Piero Deidda and Patricia D{\'i}az de Alba and Caterina Fenu and G Lovicu and G. Rodriguez}, journal={Numerical Algorithms}, year={2019}, volume={84}, pages={1313-1327} }

Electromagnetic induction surveys are among the most popular techniques for non-destructive investigation of soil properties, in order to detect the presence of both ground inhomogeneities and particular substances. This paper introduces a MATLAB package, called FDEMtools, for the inversion of frequency domain electromagnetic data collected by a ground conductivity meter, which includes a graphical user interface to interactively modify the parameters of the computation and visualize the…
