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 north eastern South America. This course sponsors is aimed at geologists wishing to improve their skill base in modern integrated Structural Geophysics mapping techniques. 

This training course, 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 of integrating their geological and geophysical data.

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.

All attendees will have the opportunity to participate in collaborative interpretations of their own data sets.
