  • About this book

  • No book is available as on date to provide both mathematical algorithms and related computer codes to analyze the gravity anomalies of subsurface geological structures using variable density contrast
  • Test data files are provided for each interpretational technique to enable the reader to have hand on practise
  • Real field examples are provided for each interpretational technique to realize its practical application
Computer based algorithms to analyze gravity anomalies for subsurface structures have gained momentum in the search of natural resources. The enormous progress since then, however, led to the development of new interpretational techniques with increasing accuracy to analyze the gravity anomalies. The fact that variable density models yield more reliable interpretations has paved the way for developing new analytical tools to analyze gravity anomalies. In this book, the parabolic density function which unambiguously describes the density-depth dependence of sedimentary rocks is used to design new algorithms and relevant GUI based JAVA programs to analyze the gravity anomalies of subsurface geological structures. Although the terms “modeling” and “inversion” are used more or less synonymously to refer to various interpretation strategies of gravity anomalies, criteria has been formulated and followed to design modeling and inversion strategies of gravity anomalies. Accordingly, automatic inversion algorithms coupled with relevant computer codes to analyze the gravity anomalies due to 2-D and 2.5-D fault structures described with both planar and non-planar fault planes are presented. Automatic techniques based on modeling and inversion principles to analyze the gravity anomalies due to 2-D and 2.5-D sedimentary basins even when the profile of interpretation fails to bisects the strike length of the target are presented with related software.
