A full automatic algorithm is designed to detect subsurface Qanats (sub terrains) via Artificial Neural Networks .We first gained the residual gravity anomaly from microgravity data and then applied it to a Multi Layer Perceptron (MLP) which was trained for the models of sphere and cylinder.
As a field example, the depth of a subsurface Qanat buried under the north entrance of the Geophysics Institute is determined through MLP (trained with noisy data).
