Part III: Multidimensional Magnetotellurics

9.1 IMPEDANCE OF A HORIZONTALLY INHOMOGENEOUS MEDIUM

Up to this point we have considered the Tikhonov-Cagniard model, which is the fundamental model of magnetotellurics. The model is very simple. A plane monochromatic wave E?, H? excites the plane earth consisting of homogeneous isotropic layers with horizontal boundaries.

10.1 QUESTIONS AND STAGES IN MAGNETOTELLURIC INTERPRETATION

The impedance tensor, [Z], and the Wiese-Parkinson matrix (the tipper), [W], are determined as functions of the period, T. Interpretation of these functions leads to the construction of a geoelectric model for the region under study. This procedure consists of three basic steps.

11.1 MULTIDIMENSIONAL DEFINITION OF THE INVERSE MAGNETOTELLURIC PROBLEM

We will revert to the plane model of the inhomogeneous earth that we considered in Section 9.1, and assume that the size of the area essential for MTS does not exceed several hundred kilometers and that a primary field within this area is horizontally unifor.
