In this study, a new three dimensional (3D) direct current resistivity (DCR) data inversion algorithm is developed. In the developed algorithm, Tikhonov parametric functional is used for regularized inversion. Mostly, smoothing stabilizer is preferred in 3D inversion algorithms of DCR data. In the developed algorithm, different stabilizers are used and their effects on the inverse solution are investigated. It is showed that, inversion with “minimum support” and “first-order minimum entropy” stabilizers gives results with sharper boundaries than inversion with smoothing stabilizer. The algorithm is tested with synthetic data and also field data which is collected in archeological area.
