Abstract

A

Forward filters to transform the apparent resistivity function over a layered half‐space into the resistivity transform have been derived for a number of sample intervals. The filters have no apparent Gibbs' oscillations and hence require no phase shift. In addition, the end points of the filter were modified to compensate for truncation. The filters were tested on simulated ascending and descending two‐layer cases. As expected, “dense” filters with sample spacing of In (10)/6 or smaller performed very well. However, even “sparse” filters with spacing of In (10)/2 and a total of nine coefficients have peak errors of less than 5% for : ratios of 10–6 to 106. If a peak error of 5.5% is acceptable, then an even sparser filter with only seven coefficients at a spacing of 3 In (10)/5 may be used.
