Gravitational fields of right-rectangular prisms in Cartesian coordinates
The gravitational fields are computed through the analytical solutions
given by [Nagy2000]_ and [Nagy2002]_, which are valid on the entire domain.
This means that the computation can be done at any point, either outside or
inside the prism.
This implementation makes use of the modified arctangent function proposed
by [Fukushima2020]_ (eq. 12) so that the potential field to satisfies
Poisson's equation in the entire domain. Moreover, the logarithm function
was also modified in order to solve the singularities that the analytical
solution has on some points (see [Nagy2000]_).
.. warning::
The **z direction points upwards**, i.e. positive and negative values
of ``upward`` represent points above and below the surface,
respectively. But remember that the ``g_z`` field returns the downward
component of the gravitational acceleration so that positive density
contrasts produce positive anomalies.
Parameters
----------
coordinates : list or 1d-array
List or array containing ``easting``, ``northing`` and ``upward`` of
the computation points defined on a Cartesian coordinate system.
All coordinates should be in meters.
prisms : list, 1d-array, or 2d-array
List or array containing the coordinates of the prism(s) in the
following order:
west, east, south, north, bottom, top in a Cartesian coordinate system.
All coordinates should be in meters. Coordinates for more than one
prism can be provided. In this case, *prisms* should be a list of lists
or 2d-array (with one prism per line).
density : list or array
List or array containing the density of each prism in kg/m^3.
field : str
Gravitational field that wants to be computed.
The available fields are:
- Gravitational potential: ``potential``
- Downward acceleration: ``g_z``
parallel : bool (optional)
If True the computations will run in parallel using Numba built-in
parallelization. If False, the forward model will run on a single core.
Might be useful to disable parallelization if the forward model is run
by an already parallelized workflow. Default to True.
dtype : data-type (optional)
Data type assigned to the resulting gravitational field. Default to
``np.float64``.
disable_checks : bool (optional)
Flag that controls whether to perform a sanity check on the model.
Should be set to ``True`` only when it is certain that the input model
is valid and it does not need to be checked.
Default to ``False``.
Returns
-------
result : array
Gravitational field generated by the prisms on the computation points.
Examples
--------
Compute gravitational effect of a single a prism
>>> # Define prisms boundaries, it must be beneath the surface
>>> prism = [-34, 5, -18, 14, -345, -146]
>>> # Set prism density to 2670 kg/m³
>>> density = 2670
>>> # Define three computation points along the easting axe at 30m above
>>> # the surface
>>> coordinates = ([-40, 0, 40], [0, 0, 0], [30, 30, 30])
>>> # Compute the downward component of the gravitational acceleration that
>>> # the prism generates on the computation points
>>> gz = prism_gravity(coordinates, prism, density, field="g_z")
>>> print("({:.5f}, {:.5f}, {:.5f})".format(*gz))
(0.06551, 0.06628, 0.06173)
Define two prisms with positive and negative density contrasts
>>> prisms = [[-134, -5, -45, 45, -200, -50], [5, 134, -45, 45, -180, -30]]
>>> densities = [-300, 300]
>>> # Compute the g_z that the prisms generate on the computation points
>>> gz = prism_gravity(coordinates, prisms, densities, field="g_z")
>>> print("({:.5f}, {:.5f}, {:.5f})".format(*gz))
