Companion dataset to the paper:

Structural, petrophysical and geological constraints in potential field inversion using the Tomofast-x open-source code, J. Giraud, V. Ogarko, R. Martin, M. Lindsay, M. Jessell, Geoscientific Model Development Discussions.

This dataset contains models and data shown in the paper, in both 2D and 3D:

1. Geological model

Reference lithology voxet:

The reference geological model was obtained using public data from the Geological Survey of Western Australia and modified subsequently (stretched vertically and flattened at surface level) for the purpose of this study.

Probability voxet
The lithology probability voxet was derived using Monte Carlo simulations for uncertainty estimation as mentioned in the paper.

2. True and inverted models for density and magnetic susceptibility

Derivation is detailed in the paper; it uses fictitious density and magnetic susceptibility values.

3. Bouguer and total magnetic field anomaly

Calculation is detailed in the paper.
