The Telluric Methods In The Study Of Sedimentary Structures - A Survey
Journal Article: The Telluric Methods In The Study Of Sedimentary Structures - A Survey
AbstractTelluric and magnetotelluric methods are compared from principle and application standpoints, particularly as applied to the study of sedimentary basins, as two distinct methods: magnetotelluric by its completeness and telluric by its simplicity and economy. Theory and practice of the relative, intrinsic and absolute ellipse methods, singlestation methods and hybrid magnetotelluric methods are described, emphasizing physical understanding, with a view to assisting prospective users. Qualitative and quantitative interpretation methods for two- and three-dimensional structures are discussed, with the aid of case histories. Telluric methods are suited primarily to low-cost reconnaissance in not-too-deep sedimentary structures associated with lateral changes in electrical resistivity that are frequently encountered in petroleum and geothermal exploration. This paper is primarily a literature survey, but includes some original material. Some procedures that are explained only in patents have also been included.
