Locally Supported Wavelets for the Separation of Spherical Vector Fields with Respect to their Sources

  • We provide a space domain oriented separation of magnetic fields into parts generated by sources in the exterior and sources in the interior of a given sphere. The separation itself is well-known in geomagnetic modeling, usually in terms of a spherical harmonic analysis or a wavelet analysis that is spherical harmonic based. However, it can also be regarded as a modification of the Helmholtz decomposition for which we derive integral representations with explicitly known convolution kernels. Regularizing these singular kernels allows a multiscale representation of the magnetic field with locally supported wavelets. This representation is applied to a set of CHAMP data for crustal field modeling.
