Cooperative Inversion of Geophysical Data

Abstract

Geophysical inversion by iterative modeling involves fitting observations by adjusting model parameters. Both seismic and potential-field model responses can be influenced by adjustment of the parameters of rock properties. The objective of this “cooperative inversion” is to obtain a model which is consistent with all available surface and borehole geophysical data. Although inversion of geophysical data is generally nonunique and ambiguous, we can lessen ambiguities by inverting all available surface and borehole data. This chapter illustrates this concept with a case history in which surface seismic data, sonic logs, surface gravity data, and borehole gravity meter (BHGM) data are modeled adequately by using least-squares inversion and a series of forward-modeling steps.
