Who should attend -This course is for members of the Ohio Geological Society.  If you are not a member, please join first for only $20. The course is intended for entry-level geoscientists with limited knowledge of potential field geophysics who would like to become better acquainted with both gravity and magnetics, but can serve also as a refresher for more experienced geoscientists.  There are no prerequisites, but awareness-level instruction in basic geology/geophysics would be helpful.


Objectives - Fundamentals of Gravity and Magnetics is a one-day course which provides basic instruction in understanding of data acquisition, processing, and interpretation techniques.  Lecture topics include:

·       Introduction

·       Origin of potential field anomalies

·       Density/susceptibility contrasts

·       Acquisition parameters and data resolution

·       Data processing techniques

·       Interpretation of total field data and non-uniqueness

·       Horizontal and vertical gradients

·       Qualitative and quantitative interpretation techniques

·       Appalachian Basin case studies

·       Summary


Cost – The one-day course includes all materials plus lunch and morning and afternoon refreshments for a total of ONLY $99 per person. Attendees are limited to 35. If you are currently not a member of the Society, please join online through the Society website for only $20. Total cost for non-members is only $119.
