By Michael S. Zhdanov

During this ebook the writer offers the state of the art electromagnetic (EM)
theories and strategies hired in EM geophysical exploration.
The booklet brings jointly the elemental thought of EM fields and the practical
aspects of EM exploration for mineral and effort resources.
This textual content is exclusive in its breadth and completeness in delivering an
overview of EM geophysical exploration technology.

The booklet is split into 4 elements masking the rules of EM
field idea and its purposes, and rising geophysical methods.

Part I is an advent to the sector thought required for baseline

Part II is an summary of all of the easy components of
geophysical EM thought, from Maxwell's basic equations to modern
methods of modeling the EM box in advanced 3D geoelectrical formations.

Part III offers with the regularized answer of ill-posed
inverse electromagnetic difficulties, the multidimensional migration and imaging of
electromagnetic facts, and basic interpretation techniques.

Part IV describes significant geophysical electromagnetic methods―direct present (DC), precipitated polarization (IP), magnetotelluric
(MT), and controlled-source electromagnetic (CSEM) methods―and covers
different functions of EM equipment in exploration geophysics, including
minerals and HC exploration, environmental examine, and crustal learn.

* provides theoretical and methodological findings, in addition to examples of functions of lately constructed algorithms and software program in fixing functional difficulties
* Describes the sensible significance of electromagnetic information via permitting discussions on a building of a closed technological cycle, processing, research and third-dimensional interpretation
* Updates present findings within the box, particularly with MT, magnetovariational and seismo-electrical tools and the perform of 3D interpretations

Any vector field which has no sources and/or vortices and is regular at infinity is identically equal to zero. This result was formulated originally in the geophysical literature by Dmitriev and Berdichevsky (2004). This rigorous mathematical result can be applied to any physical field. Therefore, the first question which should be addressed in studying any physical field is a question about the nature of its sources and vortices. We will examine this question in application to the electromagnetic field theory in the next chapters of the book.

P dα1 ∧ ... αp stands for ϕα , ψαβ , and θ, respectively, and αp denotes one of the variables x, y, or z. For example, ωα = ϕα , ωα1 ,α2 = ψα1 α2 , ωα1 ,α2 ,α3 = θ. 4 The exterior derivative Let us assume that some physical field in three-dimensional Euclidean space is described by the differential forms. For example, this field can represent a potential 26 Differential Calculus of Vector Fields and Differential Forms of the electric field (which is described by 0-form ϕ ), or elementary work of (0) the electric field (which is described by 1-form ϕ ), or an elementary flux of a (1) magnetic field (which is described by 2-form ψ ), or an elementary volume charge (2) of an electric field (which is described by 3-form θ ).

61) In the derivation of the last formula we take into account that the volume integral is taken over domain V only, because the source function, q(r), is identically equal to zero everywhere outside this domain. 58) for the Green’s function and the condition that u(r) is regular at infinity, the kernel of the surface integral decreases as 1/r3 as |r| → ∞. Consequently, if the radius, R, is expanded without limit, the surface integral along CR will tend to zero. Hence, we find u(r ) = − 1 4π V q(r) dv.
