This course uses hands-on activities to demonstrate key considerations for data preparation, testing acquisition hypotheses with forward modelling, auxiliary parameters for inversion setup, best practices for inversion modelling, and finally exploring the inversion solution space. Participants will have the opportunity to create models during and after the workshop using VOXI Earth Modelling.
Registration includes complimentary access to everything you need, including Oasis montaj, and a subscription to VOXI Earth Modelling.
2 x 4hr sessions (run over 2 days = 8hr)
