Project Title: Spatially constrained Bayesian inversion of frequency and time domain airborne electromagnetic data from the Tellus projects
Project Description: A novel method for interpreting electromagnetic data from the Tellus surveys with 1-D layered subsurface models is developed, implemented in an open-source code, and tested on field data. Using Bayesian techniques and spatial constraints, the approach delivers estimates of uncertainty along with preferred conductivity-depth models for each site.
