Søren Rasmussen

During his studies, Søren has researched ways to quantify and improve the quality of data, measured using the transient electromagnetic method (TEM). TEM is a geophysical method, which is used to map the subsurface of the earth by measuring its response to a controlled electromagnetic excitation. The resulting maps can for example be used for mapping and vulnerability assessment of groundwater resources.

The accuracy of the subsurface maps is limited by noise in the measurements. Sørens research has contributed with methods for quantifying and reducing this noise, resulting in more accurate maps, which ultimately gives an improved basis for decision making based on TEM surveys.

The PhD degree was completed at the Department of Engineering, Science and Technology, Aarhus University.

This résumé was prepared by the PhD student.
