Structural Forward Modelling


See course info on Picture_766 - campus button

The course presents the basic techniques of structural forward modelling, dealing with potential and limitations of structural modelling, geometrical and kinematic models, data sources and  uncertainty in predictions.

In this course we will (among other applications) use the structural modelling package "Noddy". This application allows you to forward model complex, multistage structural defomration steps. Have a look at the figure at the left, where a faulted layercake with a dike, is folded in two steps, and then folded.
