3D potential-field modelling to help evaluate a geothermal prospect

Gerry Connard, a senior scientist specializing in potential fields at Geosoft, shows how to successfully integrate gravity and magnetic data with other geophysical data and detailed geologic measurements. Potential field methods are useful in geothermal resource exploration because they often highlight structures (fault or fracture zones, or geologic contacts) that may play a role in guiding geothermal fluids in the subsurface.

Gerry uses a case study to illustrate the steps he used to take advantage of diverse datasets and integrate them into a detailed GM-SYS 3D model. He also shows how to take advantage of possibly lesser-known Oasis montaj features such as Tilt Derivate depth-to-source, building GM-SYS 3D models from GM-SYS Profile models, and using constraints for GM-SYS 3D models.
