Covariance-constrained difference inversion of time-lapse electrical resistivity tomography data

ABSTRACTHydrogeophysics has become a major field of research in the past two decades, and time-lapse electrical resistivity tomography (ERT) is one of the most popular techniques to monitor passive

Generalized focusing of time-lapse changes with applications to direct current and time-domain induced polarization inversions

Often in geophysical monitoring experiments time-lapse inversion models vary too smoothly with time, owing to the strong imprint of regularization. Several methods have been proposed for focusing the

Probabilistic 3-D time-lapse inversion of magnetotelluric data: application to an enhanced geothermal system

SUMMARY Surface-based monitoring of mass transfer caused by injections and extractions in deep boreholes is crucial to maximize oil, gas and geothermal production. Inductive electromagnetic methods,

Geophysics Dissertation AbstractsTime-lapse and probabilistic inversion strategies for plane-wave electromagnetic data

A two-dimensional deterministic approach to perform time-lapse inversion of plane-wave EM data based on the incorporation of prior information into the inversion algorithm regarding the expected temporal changes in electrical conductivity, and a model reduction strategy where the coefficients of a Legendre moment decomposition of the injected water plume and its location are estimated.

Magnetotelluric modelling: towards a 4-D inversion

This study investigates if inversion results can be improved by introducing a time axis into the model space, creating time-lapse (4-D) models, and outlines an inversion methodology which is altered from the existing Occam inversion to accommodate temporal changes.

Uncertainty and Resolution Analysis of 2D and 3D Inversion Models Computed from Geophysical Electromagnetic Data

This review tries to cover linearised model analysis tools such as the sensitivity matrix, the model resolution matrix and the model covariance matrix also providing a partially nonlinear description of the equivalent model domain based on pseudo-hyperellipsoids and emphasises linearisedmodel analysis, as efficient computation of nonlinear model uncertainty and resolution estimates is mainly determined by fast forward and inversion solvers.

Application of the time-domain induced polarization technique to characterize the ORman gold prospect in Mondulkiri Province, Cambodia

The aim of this thesis is to develop a new approach in the implementation of the minimum gradient support regularization operator, applied to a time-domain induced polarization problem. Indeed, this

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

Time-Lapse Seismic and Electrical Monitoring of the Vadose Zone during a Controlled Infiltration Experiment at the Ploemeur Hydrological Observatory, France

The vadose zone is the main host of surface and subsurface water exchange and has important implications for ecosystems functioning, climate sciences, geotechnical engineering, and water availability



Structural joint inversion of time‐lapse crosshole ERT and GPR traveltime data

Time‐lapse geophysical monitoring and inversion are valuable tools in hydrogeology for monitoring changes in the subsurface due to natural and forced (tracer) dynamics. However, the resulting models

Occam's inversion to generate smooth, two-dimensional models from magnetotelluric data

Magnetotelluric (MT) data are inverted for smooth 2-D models using an extension of the existing 1-D algorithm, Occam’s inversion. Since an MT data set consists of a finite number of imprecise data,

Difference Inversion of ERT Data: a Fast Inversion Method for 3-D In Situ Monitoring

A three-dimensional (3-D) Occam’s inversion algorithm for electrical resistivity tomography is modified to allow for inversion on the differences between the background and subsequent data sets. The

Characterization of a fractured granite using radio magnetotelluric (RMT) data

We applied tensor radio magnetotellurics (RMT) in the 10–250 kHz frequency range to study major fracture zones on Avro, a small island (1.6 × 1.2 km2) in southeastern Sweden with bedrock dominated by

Monitoring freshwater‐seawater interface dynamics with audiomagnetotelluric data

Saltwater intrusion is one of the main environmental concerns within coastal aquifers. In this study we test the audiomagnetotelluric (AMT) method as a technique that can detect changes in electrical

Sensitivity study of marine CSEM data for reservoir production monitoring

Using numerical and analytical modeling, we assess the feasibility of marine controlled-source electromagnetic (CSEM) data for monitoring the flooding front during water flooding of an oil reservoir.

An efficient data-subspace inversion method for 2-D magnetotelluric data

Here, a new and much simpler approach to regularized 2-D inversion of magnetotelluric data which uses cheaply computed approximations to the sensitivity matrix to search for a minimum of the penalty functional.

Improved hydrogeophysical characterization using joint inversion of cross‐hole electrical resistance and ground‐penetrating radar traveltime data

Appropriate regularizations of geophysical inverse problems and joint inversion of different data types improve geophysical models and increase their usefulness in hydrogeological studies. We have

Applied geophysical inversion

An inversion algorithm is constructed which, given an arbitrary starting model and the absence of any data, will produce a preconceived earth model and then introduces the observed data into the inversion to determine how the prior earth model is influenced by the supplementary geophysical data.
