There will be held 3 short courses in connection with the AEM2018 workshop. All courses are held at the workshop venue. See below for detailed information on the courses. Please feel free to contact the organizing committee if you further questions to the courses.


Fundamentals of Airborne Electromagnetic data processing and inversion

Instructor’s name and affiliation:
Professor Esben Auken, Associate Professor Anders V. Christiansen, Senior Geophysicist Jesper B. Pedersen and Senior Geophysicist  Nikolaj Foged, HydroGeophysics Group, Aarhus University


Date and time:
Saturday June 16 from 9 AM to 5 PM. Optional Hand on Course Sunday June 17 from 9 AM to 4 PM.


Course description:

The purpose of the course is to provide the students with an insight into the ideas and theories behind processing and inversion of AEM data. The focus is on high resolution datasets collected for geological (mineral exploration), hydrological, and geotechnical purposes.

Price: DKK 1,050.00 for Day 1 and DKK 712.50 for the optional second day.


3D EM Modelling and Inversion with Open Source Resources

Instructor’s name and affiliation

Douglas W. Oldenburg, Lindsey Heagy, Seogi Kang, UBC Geophysical Inversion Facility,

University of British Columbia, Vancouver, Canada.


Date and time:
Sunday June 17 from 9 AM to 1 PM.


Course description:

Carrying out 3D forward simulation and inversion of airborne EM data is challenging. There are few people, or groups, who have the capability to develop useable software and, even for them, the time frame can be unacceptably long. This is an impediment to research progress and also to practical application. The bottleneck can be overcome by having a geoscience community that collectively develops and shares needed software and resource material. Various world-wide initiatives are attempting to achieve this goal, and in this course we will focus on some of them as seen in the detailed program.
