Edge Detection and Depth Estimates – Application to Pseudogravity and Reduced to Pole Results: Part I

Edge detection on an oversampled synthetic anomaly with no additional noise

Comparing Horizontal Gradient, Total Gradient (Analytic Signal), and Local Wavenumber


Magnetic anomaly calculated for 1.5 meters above the ground surface. Dimensions are kilometers, sampling interval is 400 meters, contour interval is 10 nT, inclination = 68o.

  • Subsurface model:

  • Minimum depth is 250 meters, maximum is 3.35 kilometers

  • Magnetic susceptibility is constant and positive with no remanent magnetization


The Model from Different Perspectives

  • East-west faults get deeper and have less throw along strike from the center as they traverse from edge to edge of the model area

  • The north-south fault gets deeper to the south but the throw is constant

  • The long wavelength shape is that of a truncated dome.

The Model from Different Perspectives

  • East-west faults get deeper and have less throw along strike from the center but go from edge to edge of the model area

  • The north-south fault gets deeper to the south but the throw is constant

  • The long wavelength shape is that of a truncated dome.


All Maxima; Analysis on Pseudogravity

All Maxima; Analysis on RTP

  • Maxima from the methods: Blue = HGM; Green = AS; Magenta = LWN

  • For each case, operating on the pseudogravity (vertical integration of RTP) results in fewer spurious results; vertical integration is a low-pass operator.

  • East-west faults run edge to edge and get deeper away from the center; only the LWN maxima trace faults continuously to the edges on both PSG and RTP.

  • Only HGM on PSG gives insight into the curved nature of the main dome.
