5.3.1. 1D Mesh fileΒΆ

This is the file used to define a finite difference mesh for 1D modeling and inversion. In the file, the vertical column representing the earth is divided into layers. By convention, the z-axis is positive down.

An example of the file structure is as follows:

  • Number of segments used to define the vertical partitioning

  • Column 1: From there, each line defines the layer thickness.

  • Column 2 [OPTIONAL]: Model value corresponding to the \(i^{th}\) layer
