What is it about?
Integrated geophysical imaging implies a multidisciplinary comprehensive approach to subsurface model development. This infers a joint analysis of multiple geophysical data sets with all available geologic constraints that takes advantage of the strengths of each method while mitigating their individual weaknesses. The result of such multiphysics study is the subsurface model that honors ALL data and constraints and remains geologically sound.

Why is it important?
This special section is organized by the Gravity and Magnetic committee following the workshop during the SEG 2018 Annual International Meeting. The workshop concluded that the integration with non-seismic methods is generally undervalued in the geoscience community. This special section presents illustrative case studies for the concept of integrated geophysical imaging. Nine papers in this special section demonstrate how the integration with gravity, magnetics, and electromagnetic methods can improve the subsurface model, decrease the uncertainty of interpretation, and even provide a new perspective on the geologic evolution of the study region.
