Synthetic data for the solution of geophysical inverse problems

The synthetic LAB used to define an inverse problem is discretized in different number of parameters. Each  "LAB" file is one specific discretization and contains the coordinatates X and Y and the value of the LAB at each position

The reference velocity fields obtained from solving the Stokes equation with the synthetic LABs are found in "velo" files. They contain, X, Y, and Z and the field Vx, Vy and Vz.

Another synthetic data set represents the african lithosphere. The first two columns of its LAB file contain the longitude and latitude of each point and the third column is the value of the LAB. The reference velocity field obtained from solving Stokes is  found in the corresponding "velo" file.
