Magnetotelluric sounding, visualization, 3 D modeling, scalar impedance, conductive structures


The work is devoted to the analysis of a possibility and traits of use of the method of scalar impedances for the purpose of visualizing the results of MTS. It is made by the example of a number of elementary structures, for which the values of anomalously electromagnetic field was calculated by the program of 3D modeling. Graphic equivalents of modules of scalar parameters of impedance type | % | and Z , designed for the given models are resulted, their characteristic features for various types of conducting structures are considered.
