Gradiometry Course


VIDL Network experience can introduce you to Gradiometry, or more specifically, gravity and acceleration. Gravity gradiometry is the study and measurement of variations in the acceleration due to gravity. The gravity gradient is the spatial rate of change of gravitational acceleration. Gravity gradiometry is used by oil and mineral prospectors to measure the density of the subsurface, effectively the rate of change of rock properties

The use of Full Tensor Gravity Gradiometry, or FTG, is becoming increasingly common in the exploration industry. This set of three modules and projects will allow you to become familiar with the dataset as it is used in oil, gas and mineral exploration, gain full background understanding of the components and how the data is acquired. Each module consists of three videos, a project and [...]
