UBC DCIP3D 2.1是世界上最先进的可在开阔区域使用的三维反演代码软件之一，可以用来调查复杂的颠倒变地形条件。
DCIP3D is one of the most advanced 3D inversion codes available in the public domain and can be used to invert complex surveys in variable topographic conditions.
The research was funded principally by the mineral industry consortium “3D Inversion of DC Resistivity and IP Data” which was sponsored by the Canadian National Science and Engineering Research Council (NSERC) and the following 7 companies: Placer Dome, BHP Minerals, Cominco Exploration, Falconbridge, INCO Exploration & Technical Services, Newmont Gold Company and Rio Tinto.
Unlike other UBC-GIF codes, there is no graphical user interface for running the DCIP3D forward or inversion codes. However the UBC-GIF utility MeshTools3D can be used to view 3D models of conductivity or chargeability. MeshTools3D can also build 3D synthetic blocky models.
Carrying out 3D forward modelling and inversion is non-trivial. There are no tutorials for using this code. However there is a complete technical manual in PDF format which includes examples of results. There is also a paper entitled 2-D and 3-D IP/resistivity inversion for the interpretation of Mt Isa-style targets.
Profile Analyst can be used for visualisation of the inversion results and hence the inclusion of other geological and geophysical data.
