Introduction

These tutorials should help you understand how geophysical inversion can contribute to geoscience tasks and the basics of how it works. Choosing one from the menu will open it in a new window. Have we also mentioned how great the IAG resource is for learning? The IAG CD-ROM is a learning facility about geophysical inversion. It is structured like a text book but includes educational versions of UBC-GIF programs, data sets, interactive self-test facilities, and exercises for use by individuals or classes. We have divided this tutorial page into 5 main sections: Introductory articles, Online tutorials, Workflows, Summary, and Technical background. Technical background points to technical details contained in software manuals. We also recommend
