This special issue of Geophysical Prospecting is a collection of papers presented at the international workshop 'Innovation in EM, Grav and Mag Methods, A New Perspective for Exploration' held from 15–18 April 2007 in Capri (Italy). The workshop, organized by the Italian EAGE-SEG Section, addressed topics of high interest to the exploration geophysics. In fact, gravity, magnetic and electromagnetic methods, known in the industrial world as 'non-seismic methods', are receiving new found interest from not only E&P companies but even from academia and research institutions. This interest has been created by new advances in instrumentation, involving often the simultaneous acquisition of large datasets, even of tensorial nature, and the related requirement for new kinds of analysis and modelling techniques, allowing large-scale, simultaneous and/or multidimensional data inversion. The workshop 'Innovation in EM, Grav and Mag Methods, A New Perspective for Exploration' had a total of 46 oral papers and 25 poster papers and was structured to cover the entire range of the methods with four sessions, both oral and poster: Measuring and Interpreting Tensorial Gravity and Magnetic Gradients; Inversion and Imaging of EM, Grav and Mag data; Advances in Instrumentation and Data Acquisition; Joint Interpretation of EM, Grav, Mag and Seismic Data. The papers submitted to the conference were carefully evaluated by a high-level scientific committee and the attendance was from 29 different countries all over the world, thus giving the conference the possibility to represent the perfect, state-of-the-art results achieved by academia, geophysical contractors and E&P companies.

Abstract

This special issue of Geophysical Prospecting is a collection of papers presented at the international workshop 'Innovation in EM, Grav and Mag Methods, A New Perspective for Exploration' held from 15–18 April 2007 in Capri (Italy). The workshop, organized by the Italian EAGE-SEG Section, addressed topics of high interest to the exploration geophysics. In fact, gravity, magnetic and electromagnetic methods, known in the industrial world as 'non-seismic methods', are receiving new found interest from not only E&P companies but even from academia and research institutions. This interest has been created by new advances in instrumentation, involving often the simultaneous acquisition of large datasets, even of tensorial nature, and the related requirement for new kinds of analysis and modelling techniques, allowing large-scale, simultaneous and/or multidimensional data inversion. The workshop 'Innovation in EM, Grav and Mag Methods, A New Perspective for Exploration' had a total of 46 oral papers and 25 poster papers and was structured to cover the entire range of the methods with four sessions, both oral and poster: Measuring and Interpreting Tensorial Gravity and Magnetic Gradients; Inversion and Imaging of EM, Grav and Mag data; Advances in Instrumentation and Data Acquisition; Joint Interpretation of EM, Grav, Mag and Seismic Data. The papers submitted to the conference were carefully evaluated by a high-level scientific committee and the attendance was from 29 different countries all over the world, thus giving the conference the possibility to represent the perfect, state-of-the-art results achieved by academia, geophysical contractors and E&P companies.
