  • Publication number: 20170227668
    Abstract: A method and system for estimation of electromagnetic earth responses in a marine electromagnetic survey. A method may comprise estimating initial values of the electromagnetic earth responses and ambient noise applicable to the marine electromagnetic survey; and processing electromagnetic data based on the initial values of the electromagnetic earth responses and the ambient noise to obtain a joint estimation of updated values of the electromagnetic earth responses and the ambient noise, wherein the electromagnetic data was acquired with one or more electromagnetic sensors, wherein the electromagnetic data contains measurements of an electromagnetic field.

  • Patent number: 9575205
    Abstract: Disclosed are methods and apparatus using frequency-selected electromagnetic inversion to obtain sub-surface geophysical characteristics. One embodiment relates to a computer-implemented method for inverting an electromagnetic geophysical data signal to obtain an earth response. The method involves computing uncertainties associated with an electromagnetic geophysical data signal and selecting subset of frequencies based on the uncertainties. The electromagnetic geophysical data signal may then be inverted for the subset of the frequencies to determine the earth response. Other embodiments, aspects, and features are also disclosed.
