May 28 — June 3
This week in SimPEG…
Highlights this week are from Craig Miller and Joe Capriotti who both have been using the new Tree Mesh. Joe has re-written and significantly (!) improved the Tree Mesh implementation within discretize 🎉 🎉 🎉
You can see the changes and play with the new implementation by checking-out the active pull request: simpeg/discretize#94.
This week …
Joe Capriotti is an instructor for the Colorado School of Mines geophysics field camp and has been using the QuadTree mesh to perform a 2D DC inversion that includes topography. The line of data is 3.5km long and a Wenner array setup with 20m electrode spacing was employed.
No meeting was held this week, but in the previous week, we held a brief meeting to discuss presentations for the RFG conference being held in Vancouver June 16–21. The SimPEG team has 2 presentations and a poster:
- Dom Fournier will be presenting: SimPEG: open source software for simulations and inversions in geophysics in Session EA19: Geophysical Exploration Methods. His presentation is in Room 203 at 10:30 on Wednesday June, 20.
- Thibaut Astic will be presenting: Make the most of your knowledge: Using machine learning to make geophysical inversions geologic immediately following Dom’s presentation in Session EA19: Geophysical Exploration Methods. His presentation is in Room 203 at 10:45 on Wednesday June, 20.
- Michael Mitchell will be presenting a poster on: Mapping water bearing regions around tunnels or mine workings using a ring based DC resistivity survey.
