Application ID: 9903
Magnetotellurics is a method for estimating the resistivity profile of the Earth's subsurface using the natural electromagnetic source provided by the ionosphere.
This model was defined by Zhdanov et al. in a study published in 1997. In this article, various scientific groups compared software performance on the same models. This is the model called COMMEMI-3D-2, which has become one of the benchmarks for the modeling of magnetotellurics.
This model solves for two frequencies. More frequencies can be added to the study, but for lower frequencies the domain should be made larger by increasing the values of the parameters Lx and Ly.
This application was built using the following:AC/DC Module
The combination of COMSOL® products required to model your application depends on the physics interfaces that define it. Particular physics interfaces may be common to several products (see the Specification Chart for more details). To determine the right combination of products for your project, you should evaluate all of your needs in light of each product's capabilities, consultation with the COMSOL Sales and Support teams, and the use of an evaluation license.
