About the Course


This 5 day training course will provide an introduction to modern laboratory based techniques applied to the regional geophysical data of the West African Craton. This course  is aimed at geologists wishing to improve their skill base in modern integrated Structural Geophysics mapping techniques. Many regions in the world now are covered at a high-resolution by airborne geophysical data sets,including magnetic, electromagnetic, digital terrain models and radiometric surveys. When combined with multi-spectral satellite data, and of course the available geological observations, these geophysical data provide key constraints on our geological interpretation, in particular in ancient terrains, such as the West African Craton.This training course, organised by Laurent Aillères and Robin Armit who collectively have decades of experience of interpretation and modelling of aeromagnetic, radiometric and other regional geophysical data, is aimed at those people who would like to acquire the fundamental interpretation techniques needed to use very high resolution data sets and those who are faced with the problem ofintegrating their geological and geophysical data.
