Notes on geoelectrics
© Rokityanskiy I.I.
Unlike practical science - electrical prospecting, geoelectrics is regarded as a fundamental science, which sets
the task of an honest, reliable study of the objective reality - the Earth. Since observation of electromagnetic fields
is possible only on/above the Earth in a limited number of sites with limited accuracy, the conclusions of geoelectrics
are always ambiguous. Providing only a single solution, especially resulting from the use of regularization, can lead to
false conclusions, and regarded as a manipulation of facts, that discredits both the authors and the whole science of
geoelectrics. So, many products of inversion (especially 2D) should be regarded not as a well proven geological result
but as one of possible transformation of response functions.
