1. adj. [Geophysics]
Pertaining to variation of the frequency while maintaining the geometry of electromagnetic surveying. In contrast, geometric pertains to keeping the same geometry while varying the frequency.
2. adj. [Geophysics]
Pertaining to a method of seismic inversion to separate wavefields by iteratively developing a model of the data that conforms to the recorded data. Parametric inversion is used in processing vertical seismic profile (VSP) data.
