Identification Introduction

A fully non-linear inversion scheme based on bayesian Markov
Chain Monte Carlo (MCMC) algorithm has been developed for
magnetotelluric (MT) 1-D and thin-sheet models. Application for
both synthetic and field data from various scale showed satisfying
results with reference to synthetic models and local geology. The
paper describes an attempt to apply the MT inversion algorithm
to 3-D cases. We incorporate existing 3-D MT forward modelling
algorithm based on staggered grid finite-difference technique.
Tests using simple conductivity models showed that there are
problems remain to be studied further : (i) equivalence or
ambiguity, (ii) sensitivity or resolution in terms of "a priori"
conductivity values. Additionally, efficient and faster forward
modelling algorithm is needed since MCMC based inversion is a
slow and computer intensive method. Partially resolving the
forward modelling due to conductivity change of only one grid or
cell might improve the algorithm. However, the fact that the
algorithm showed decreasing error or misfit is encouraging.

Markov Chain Monte Carlo (MCMC) algorithm is an alternative

method in resolving highly non-linear inverse problems. The
algorithm was tested by performing inversions of synthetic data
in the form of impedance tensor. In general, 3-D synthetic models
containing resistive and conductive anomalies are fairly well
resolved ( Grandis, 2006 pg. 32).
