Title: Interactive Modeling and Interpretation of Two-Dimensional Gravity and Magnetics Data: ABSTRACT

Author(s): Previous HitNealTop F. Jordan, F. H. Wessman, Betty K. Miller

Article Type: Meeting abstract


The number of possible interpretations of a gravity or magnetic profile is reduced by the presence of other geophysical or geologic data. Experience, common sense, and a newly developed interactive modeling program make it possible to examine and choose among those that remain. The interactive modeling program is based on Talwani's algorithm and includes features which make it possible to change the geometry and properties of the causative bodies and quickly observe the results.
