Abstract: The Howley Basin is an onshore basin in western Newfoundland, Canada, and is thought to have hydrocarbon potential. However, the geology of the Howley Basin is not clear, with no wells deeper that a few hundred metres having been drilled in the area. Over the last several years there have been a number of complementary, collaborative projects at Memorial University that have attempted to improve our knowledge of the Howley Basin, especially regarding the depth of the Basin and hence its hydrocarbon potential. New gravity data have been acquired to extend and fill-in previous sparse coverage of the basin. Also, a line of magnetotelluric (MT) data was collected across the Basin, as it is assumed that the sedimentary rocks of the Basin are more conductive than the igneous rocks of the basement. In this talk inversion results obtained from 3D inversion of the gravity and MT data are discussed. 

Biography: I did my B.Sc. in  Physics at the University of Isfahan, Iran. Then, I pursue my research interest in Geophysics (Geomagnetism) and graduated from the Institute of Geophysics at the University of Tehran. I did forward modelling to model different magnetic anomalies of the subsurface in order to investigate the effect of the topography on the shape and polarity of the magnetic anomalies. Now, I am a Ph.D. candidate at the Memorial University of Newfoundland, and I am working under the supervision of Professor Colin Farquharson. My research topic is developing a methodology to jointly invert MT and gravity data sets of the Howley Basin, a sedimentary Basin in western Newfoundland, to assess the basin depth and hydrocarbon potential.
