Top 5 Inversion Best Practices: Auxiliary Parameters

The best geophysical inversion studies and presentations discuss the implications of the auxiliary information the scientists have chosen. So exactly what is auxiliary information in inversion? It's everything input into the model that isn't the data itself.

In this video, Taronish Pithawala, technical lead for geophysical modelling, discusses why it's important to understand these parameters and how to best choose them.


  • How to determine the best cell size
  • Why we recommend optimum data sampling
  • When to use absolute and relative errors
  • Why trend removal can dramatically improve your inversion results

This video is Episode 1 of the Top 5 Inversion Best Practices series based on a best practices workshop hosted by Geosoft.
