Özet

In the recent years, geophysical methods have been applied successfully in archaeological studies. In this article we have studied the application of wavelet transform to magnetic data in order to estimate boundaries of various synthetic examples and real data. Enhanced Horizontal Derivative (EHD) method is also applied as an alternative method for boundary estimation. The performance of wavelet transform and the EHD method are evaluated using magnetic data of the Sarissa-Kusakli archaeological site. All boundary results are mutually compared. Based on these comparisons, we conclude that the wavelet transform provides reasonable results.
