Title: Magnetotelluric Exploration--Update: ABSTRACT

Author(s): David Halpin

Article Type: Meeting abstract


Exploration for oil, gas, and geothermal resources through the use of magnetotellurics has reached an all-time high. Geophysical exploration in poor or nonseismic areas, coupled with increased interpretational capabilities, has made magnetotelluric exploration a practical tool. The explorationist now has an increased capability to explore in areas where geophysical data were previously impossible to obtain. Interpretation of magnetotelluric data is greatly enhanced through the use of new modeling techniques. Case studies demonstrate magnetotelluric exploration applications.
