Welcome to the Center for Gravity,
Electrical & Magnetic Studies (CGEM)
in the Department of Geophysics at the Colorado School of Mines. CGEM
is an academic research center that focuses on the quantitative interpretation
of gravity, magnetic, electrical and electromagnetic data in applied geophysics.
The center brings together the diverse expertise of faculty and students
in these different geophysical methods and works towards advancing the
state of art in geophysical data interpretation for real-world problems.
The emphases of CGEM research are processing, inversion and interpretation
of applied geophysical data. The primary areas of application include
petroleum exploration, mineral exploration,unexploded ordnance (UXO) detection
& discrimination, and near surface problems. In addition, environmental
problems, natural hazard monitoring, archaeological mapping, hydro-geophysics
and crustal study are also within the scope of the center.
