We suggest a new inversion method for frequency induction data implying the use of a new parameter, which has a simple analytical form in the case of a uniform subsurface. The new parameter is found from induction numbers measured in the field of a vertical magnetic dipole or a vertical magnetic dipole combined either with a horizontal electrical dipole or with a horizontal magnetic dipole. Compared with the classical methods, the new technique provides better resolved resistivity curves and faithful images of the subsurface at higher frequencies and smaller transmitter-receiver separations. The inversion algorithm is applied to amplitude and amplitude-phase data and provides reliable depth assignment of the detected resistivity layers in the latter case.
