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… 
Inversion of Multiconfiguration Complex EMI Data with Minimum Gradient Support Regularization: A Case Study
TLDR
An algorithm for the inversion of the complex signal in its entirety, as well as a regularization method that promotes the sparsity of the reconstructed electrical conductivity distribution that incorporates a minimum gradient support stabilizer into a truncated generalized singular value decomposition scheme.
A variational non-linear constrained model for the inversion of FDEM data
TLDR
A regularization method to invert FDEM data to determine the electrical conductivity of the ground by solving a variational problem and proves that, if the regularization parameter is tuned accordingly to the amount of noise present in the data, this model induces aRegularization method.
Inversion of electromagnetic induction data using a novel wavelet-based and scale-dependent regularization term
TLDR
A new inversion scheme is developed in which the model is transformed to the wavelet space and the constraint is imposed, which will minimize an objective function with a least-squares data misfit and a sparsity measure of the model in theWavelet domain.
Remote Sensing, Archaeological, and Geophysical Data to Study the Terramare Settlements: The Case Study of Fondo Paviani (Northern Italy)
