Christopher Green

Chris is a Geophysical Consultant at Getech and has over 30 years’ experience in the processing and interpretation of gravity and magnetic data. Following an MSc in Geophysics at the University of Leeds (1983), he worked as a Research Assistant on projects, including crustal-scale seismic modelling, 3D gravity inversion algorithms and developing a seismic workstation to aid identification of small faults in seismic for coal exploration. He was involved with the Getech gravity compilation projects from the beginning (1986) – developing techniques for integrating marine gravity, developing DEMs and calculating gravity terrain corrections. He developed techniques for linking magnetic data sets and managed the integration of surveys to generate the African Magnetic Mapping Project continent-wide grid. Over the following years, he developed processes for displaying gravity and magnetic data in a plate tectonic framework and for processing high-resolution marine gravity data. Additionally, Chris developed a satellite altimeter processing system at Getech and was involved in a series of projects to enhance the data – including reprocessing the raw waveform data. More recently, Chris has been involved in projects to develop gravity and magnetic interpretation methods and to interpret the structure of rifts and continental margins; he also led a major R&D project to enhance the mapping of the Curie Isotherm.
Chris was Technical Director of Getech from 2000 to 2007. He completed his PhD on Global Gravity Compilation and its Application to Plate Tectonic Reconstruction in 1997. Chris also lectures in gravity and magnetic methods at the University of Leeds.
