Michael S. Zhdanov, Leif Cox, and Jonathan Rudd demonstrate with a case study of oil sands exploration near Fort McMurray, Alberta how the 3D inversion of airborne electromagnetic survey data can be used to improve near-surface imaging, in their view a potential paradigm change particularly with regard to hydrocarbon exploration.
