Integration of geophysical datasets by a conjoint probability tomography approach: application to Italian active volcanic areas

D. Patella, P. Mauriello
2008 Annals of Geophysics  
We expand the theory of probability tomography to the integration of different geophysical datasets. The aim of the new method is to improve the information quality using a conjoint occurrence probability function addressed to highlight the existence of common sources of anomalies. The new method is tested on gravity, magnetic and self-potential datasets collected in the volcanic area of Mt. Vesuvius (Naples), and on gravity and dipole geoelectrical datasets collected in the volcanic area of
