Regularization methods improve the stability of ill-posed inverse problems by introducing some a priori characteristics for the solution such as smoothness or sharpness. In this contribution, we propose a multidimensional, scale-dependent wavelet-based (cid:96) 1 -regularization term to cure the ill-posedness of the airborne (time-domain) electromagnetic induction inverse problem. The regularization term is flexible, as it can recover blocky, smooth and tunable in-between inversion models, based… 



Inversion of electromagnetic induction data using a novel wavelet-based and scale-dependent regularization term

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.

Compressive sensing approach for two‐dimensional magnetotelluric inversion using wavelet dictionaries

We present a 2D inversion scheme for magnetotelluric data, where the conductivity structure is parameterised with different wavelet functions that are collected in a wavelet‐based dictionary. The

Inversion of time domain three‐dimensional electromagnetic data

SUMMARY We present a general formulation for inverting time domain electromagnetic data to recover a 3-D distribution of electrical conductivity. The forward problem is solved using finite volume

Constructing piecewise-constant models in multidimensional minimum-structure inversions

A modification of the typical minimum-structure inver-sion algorithm is presented that generates blocky, piecewise-constant earth models. Such models are often more consistent with our real or

3D inversion of airborne electromagnetic data using a moving footprint

It is often argued that 3D inversion of entire airborne electromagnetic (AEM) surveys is impractical, and that 1D methods provide the only viable option for quantitative interpretation. However, real

Sharp spatially constrained inversion with applications to transient electromagnetic data

Time‐domain electromagnetic data are conveniently inverted by using smoothly varying 1D models with fixed vertical discretization. The vertical smoothness of the obtained models stems from the

3D electromagnetic modelling and inversion: a case for open source

Comparing the use of an open-source methodology in electromagnetics and providing results in a manner that allows others to reproduce, further explore, and even extend them hopes to demonstrate that anopen-source paradigm has the potential to enable more rapid progress in the geophysics community as a whole.

Occam's inversion; a practical algorithm for generating smooth models from electromagnetic sounding data

The inversion of electromagnetic sounding data does not yield a unique solution, but inevitably a single model to interpret the observations is sought. We recommend that this model be as simple, or

Quasi-3D modeling of airborne TEM data by spatially constrained inversion

We present a new methodology, spatially constrained inversion (SCI), that produces quasi-3D conductivity modeling of electromagnetic (EM) data using a 1D forward solution. Spatial constraints are set

The effects of noise on Occam's inversion of resistivity tomography data

An Occam's inversion algorithm for crosshole resistivity data that uses a finite-element method forward solution is discussed. For the inverse algorithm, the earth is discretized into a series of
