I am interested in Simpeg but I want to find out if it fits what I

want to do. I have created the method I am calling

Interferographic TEM (ITEM), applying field interference concepts to

do TEM beamforming in the subsurface. Right now I am sticking to 2D

configurations - a long H(B) profile above a vertical E section in the earth,

both repeated for each source position. I work with both grounded

wire and large loop sources. I am hoping Simpeg can do forward EM

model calculations supplying H (B) profiles on or above (with drones)

the earth surface and subsurface E distributions on a grid as

functions of both source position (i.e., multiple sources) and time.

A simple starting reference model might be 1D, but for subsequent

iterations I would use an ITEM subsurface resistivity image as a new

reference model (so, 2D/3D that is very general in which each grid

element will have a different resistivity value). So my question

would be: Can Simpeg handle this, as currently available?

Most (all?) of the commercial modeling codes are too expensive for me

(the necessary infrastructure also). What would be the minimum

requirements to properly do Simpeg modeling? If necessary I could

use frequency domain calculations and transform to the time domain using

Walt Andersonâ€™s (USGS) digital filters (which I have converted to Matlab);

that is what I do currently. If the frequency domain calculations are better

(or more fleshed out) than the time domain calculations, that is.

Thanks,
