Working with several providers gives us the flexibility to switch at any time to a platform which can provide the high performance computational resources needed to complete your jobs on time.
The core of our product is the ModEM (short for "modular EM") code developed at Oregon State University. ModEM is a modular inversion system, with model parameters, forward code, observation functional, and inversion search algorithms meant to be interchangeable. The code has been mostly used so far for 3D inversion of MT data. The free academic version has over 250 registered users (worldwide), and at least 50 publications in the referred literature cite use of ModEM in studies at a range of scales around the globe.
The developer's team of ModEM continues to work intensively on adding new features in the code. This include:
The front-end of is a user-friendly interface which includes many functions and options to facilitate visualizing and editing input data and model grids. A central component of the user-friendly interface is
of 3D inversion results is essential to insightful interpretation. For this purpose, we provide extensive tools, based on a variant of the WebGL libraries, which allow as well as integration with other geological and geophysical constraints.

Dr. Naser Meqbel received his master degree in geophysics from Cologne University (Germany) and obtained the Doctoral title from Freie University of Berlin in collaboration with the Research Centre for Geoscience-Potsdam, Germany (GFZ). His main research topics include 2D and 3D modelling of electrical and electromagnetic data. Together with Prof. Egbert, he is also a developer of ModEM code. In addition to his scientific contributions, he has worked as a consultant for 3D EM methods for geothermal and mineral exploration firms worldwide.
Prof. G. Egbert (Oregon State University; OSU) is the single-most recognized pioneer on magnetotelluric data processing and modeling and in 2015 received the honor of AGU Fellow. He has published over 100 papers, which have been cited over 10,000 times. He has worked extensively in MT data processing, developing novel multivariate array processing methods. He also is the lead developer of the ModEM code.
Drop us an Email and tell us about your specifications and requirements. We closely review your project and issue you a quotation of cost,with a rough estimate for the time required to accomplish the task.1nd Step
Once you accept our quotation send us the data in the format you have. The EDI data format is a standard, but we can accommodate any other (documented) format you have.2rd Step
We strongly believe that the first step towards getting a good inversion results is. Therefore, our team will start analysing the data to get the first feeling on what would be expected from the inversion. This step is also important for choosing the best inversion setting; including the background resistivity model. Some further discussion with you may also be important at this stage. 3th Step
Based on our initial look at the data, the spatial distribution of the sites andwe choose the optimum inversion setting and model discretization to get the first inversion results and share them with you. 4th Step
We share the initial results with you, and get your feedback. Based on your comments and suggestions we do additional runs to refine results, and further explore your dataset.5th Step
Estimating the runtime, hence, the price for inversion of a real data set is not an easy task. However, based on extensive experience with many inversions runs (right chart) we can provide a statistical estimate of the required runtime, based on information you provide, to give you a rough idea of the expected price.
Chart shows runtime vs the number of model parameters. For this chart, we only used inversion runs that have been converged to acceptable RMS values.
