Abstract Technological advancements result in the continuous development of geophysical acquisition systems
allowing for an ever-increasing amount of data recorded within a distinct time period. Current airborne
geophysical databases covering intermediate sized survey areas comprise usually billions of digital
readings. The sheer size of the available amount of information and rapid data acquisition capacities
are increasing the pressure on Earth scientists to accelerate the data processing and information
extraction procedures. We review the strength and weaknesses of current classical data analysis and
integration approaches relying heavily on the skills and experience of a human interpreter and
statistical approaches analyzing data sets strictly numerically. We highlight the need to develop new
and intelligent data mining approaches suitable to combine and learn the strengths of the statistical and
classical data analysis and integration approaches which may bear the potential to advance our
understanding of geological processes and interrelations.
