Inversion of Gravity Data Using a Metaheuristic Bat Algorithm for Various Ore and Mineral Models
The inversion of gravity data is an important technique for mineral exploration, as it can provide information about the distribution of density variations within the Earth's subsurface. The Bat algorithm is a metaheuristic optimization algorithm inspired by the echolocation behavior of bats. It has been successfully applied to a wide range of optimization problems, including inverse problems in geophysics. Inverse problems in geophysics are challenging due to several factors such as the non-uniqueness of the solutions, the complexity of the subsurface, the noise in the data, and the limitations of the measurement techniques.
