TRANSFORM 2020 has ended
Welcome to the first global, virtual TRANSFORM! The Software Underground is excited to bring you lots of interesting and useful sessions on the digital subsurface. The schedule is still taking shape, but this event is a bit different from most conferences: the sessions are all fully participatory and interactive. Get ready for a conversation!

If you are viewing the schedule on the web, you can select the timezone you wish to see in the menu on the right. In the mobile app, times are shown in UTC.

Tutorial: Geophysical inversion in SimPEG

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

 In this tutorial, we will provide a hand-on overview of using SimPEG to simulate and invert geophysical data. The examples we plan to work through use Direct Current (DC) Resistivity and Induced Polarization (IP) data from the Century Zinc Deposit in Australia.

Starting from field data in a text file we will learn how to
  • load those data into SimPEG 
  • construct a survey object that contains the geometry of the sources and receivers
  • set up and run a forward simulation 
  • define the inverse problem consisting of a data misfit and regularization
  • run an inversion and discuss inversion strategies

Here are the links to the materials for this session

And some additional resources for getting involved in the SimPEG community
