We suggest new inversion techniques for IP-affected TDEM data. The method implies joint inversion of inductive and galvanic measurements, the galvanic array being configured in a way to separate the polarization and induction components of transient responses from a layered polarizable earth. The IP effects turned out to be reducible at a certain receiver configuration, which was predicted theoretically and proved valid in field tests.
