Title: (EN) RESOURCE ESTIMATION SYSTEM AND RESOURCE ESTIMATION METHOD
Abstract: front page image
(EN)

Exploration of resources of the bottom of water such as a seafloor based on a self-potential is accurately performed. A computer of a resource estimation system includes an estimation information acquisition unit that acquires potential information indicating potentials of a plurality of potential electrodes having a predetermined positional relationship measured at a plurality of positions in water, a noise removal unit that removes noise contained in the measured potentials by performing principal component analysis or independent component analysis using the potentials, and a resource estimation unit that estimates the presence of the resources in the bottom of water based on the potential from which the noise has been removed.
