Short summary
We have modelled airborne electromagnetic data in order to correct bias in magnetotelluric data caused by very near-surface resistivity variations. Doing so recovers structures that match boreholes in the area more closely. This research is part of an exploration project looking at geothermal resources, and improved accuracy in modelling translates directly to more confidence in resources assessments.
