10. Comprehensive Workflows

This section of the GIFtools cookbook is meant to provide practical tutorials for inverting field-collected data. Generally, the user will start with topography and geophysical data in a standard format. The ultimate goal is to invert the field collected data and recover a model that can be used for interpretation. Successful inversion of geophysical data using the UBC-GIF framework requires:

  • Understanding geophysical anomalies produced by basic structures

  • Importing geophysical data and topography into GIFtools

  • Transforming data from other conventions to the UBC-GIF convention

  • Basic interpretation of the data

  • Assigning appropriate uncertainties

  • Designing an appropriate mesh

  • Inverting the data with reasonable parameters

  • Assessment and interpretation of inversion results
