Each geologic province has unique geological or geophysical parameters. Prospective anomaly signatures associated with each individual province will vary accordingly. Pattern recognition of anomaly signatures is of vital importance to all interpretation sciences. The following discussion is one of a series of six on the importance of pattern recognition. Geoscientists need to have a working knowledge of what type of signal patterns are valuable for better integration of gravity and magnetic data with seismic and geological data to develop exploration targets. Using the integration process in exploration is known to reduce risk, evaluation time and therefore reduce the total cost of exploration.
After completing this module you’ll be able to:
- Understand principle anomaly patterns related to lithological and structural variations in basement structures
