A Three-Dimensional (3D) EarthModel, a geophysics- and geology-based three-dimensional model of the earth, is best described in terms of its exploration objective. Once a geologic target is chosen, the model can be designed to represent the geologic environment surrounding the prospective zone.

Learning Objectives:

After completing this module, you’ll be able to:

  • Describe what a 3D EarthModel is.
  • Describe how extensive should the model be.
  • Determine what type of data and constraints are required for the model, and on which datum to compute the model effect.
  • Explain how a 3D EarthModel can benefit your exploration objective through improved delineation of geologic structure and lithology.
