{{#category_index:E|Euler deconvolution}}

(oi’ l∂r) A procedure applied to profile or gridded potential field data to solve *Euler’s homogeneous equation* (q.v.) for the locations and depths of sources for an assumed Euler structural index. On profiles, each calculation is run for a window length tuned to the expected depth range. With gridded magnetic or gravity maps, calculations are run over square windows that are moved by a grid unit for the next depth calculation. Pick values cluster together at a valid structural index; a fault might be indicated by a horizontal alignment. See Thompson (1982); Reid *et al.* (1990).
