Characterization and modelling tools
The characterization of recent sediments and ancient sedimentary rocks is a strategic step to constrain the main processes controlling the formation and deformation of strata. It provides the data necessary for the construction of realistic and robust 3D geological subsurface models. Advanced process- and statistics-based numerical models are a crucial element in the section’s strategy to simulate sedimentary and structural processes. These not only help understanding the dynamics of such, but – if validated properly in controlled environments – allow to construct more robust and detailed 2D and 3D models of the subsurface.
