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
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
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
1D sequential inversion of portable multi-configuration electromagnetic induction data
We present an algorithm that performs sequentially one-dimensional inversion of subsurface magnetic permeability and electrical conductivity by using multi-configuration electromagnetic induction
