[en] The electrical resistivity tomography (ERT) inverse problem is ill-posed leading to non-uniqueness of its solution. A possible way to reduce the amount of mathematical solutions to more geologically plausible models is to incorporate priori information in the inversion process. In this presentation, we describe the implementation of three different techniques ways to go beyond standard Occam’s inversion for ERT with the code CRTomo : a simple reference model weighted by a user-defined parameter, a structural constraint defined by modifying the construction of the roughness matrix compared to standard Occam’s inversion and a geostatistical constraint based on a vertical correlation length deduced from borehole data to build the model covariance matrix and use it to regularize the inversion. With several examples, we show that the traditional smoothness constraint yield small contrasts of resistivity, far from the reality revealed by borehole measurements. Incorporating prior information from boreholes clearly or from another geophysical technique (like GPR or seismic refraction) improves the misfit with logging data. The choice of the prior information incorporation technique highly depends on which king of information is available and further developments are needed to extend the techniques to more complex cases.
