2D laterally constrained inversion (2D-LCI) is a new approach to interpretation of continuous resistivity data. The 2D-LCI enables a layered 2D inversion with sharp layer boundaries as compared to traditional smooth inversion types. However, the full 2D solution is quite time consuming when calculating the derivatives in the Jacobian matrix. To reduce the computation times we suggest using 1D derivatives, Broyden's update formula (Quasi- Newton) or combinations of Broyden's update formula and 1D derivatives together with the full 2D solution. The reduction in computation time is between 7 and 30 times dependent on the combination of approximations.
