Geological Interpretation of Aeromagnetic Data – a Practical Approach

  • NExUS-Professional Development (NExUS-PD) is proud to be able to present this very highly regarded workshop from two highly respected industry professionals.
  • The specially designed two-day online workshop will introduce the fundamentals of geological interpretation of aeromagnetic data.
  • The workshop will feature lectures, practical activities and case studies all using integrated data sets.
  • Each day will feature 3 x 2hr sessions with exercises to be completed between the sessions and time allocated for extended discussions.
  • The format aims for open, transparent communication, with input from participants highly encouraged to share knowledge and experiences.
