Abstract:

The problem of inferring the Earth conductivity as a function of depth from surface measurements of the magnetic field is considered. Two versions of a method analogous to that of Bailey 1970 are presented. The main feature of the method consists in the fact that the conductivity is given explicitly in terms to two auxiliary sequences of functions which are found by integrating a set of first order nonlinear differential equations.
