The real spectral analysis of SP anomalies due to 2-D horizontal circular cylinder is carried out using Hartley transform. The Hartley transform is an alternate means of realizing spectral analysis in real domain unlike the Fourier spectral analysis. The Hartley transform yields a straightforward interpretation of SP anomalies caused by horizontal circular cylinder wherein all the parameters are derived independently as a function of frequency. A theoretical example illustrates the procedure. The effect of random noise, up to 10% of white Gaussian noise, on the interpretation scheme was also studied and found to be of negligible. The field example of the “Sulleymonkey” anomaly in the Ergoni copper district, Turkey exemplifies the applicability of the proposed method.
