Course Module: PF 120 – 2D Structural Model


A Two-Dimensional (2D) Structural Model, a geophysical and geological based cross-sectional model of the earth, is best described in terms of its exploration objective. This means that when a geologic target is chosen, the s t ructural model is designed to represent the geologic/geophysical environment surrounding the prospective area.

Learning Objectives

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

  • Describe what a 2D Structural Model is, how extensive it should be, what type of data and constraints are required for the model, and on which datum to compute the model effect.
  • Describe how extensive and detailed a model should be.
  • Explain how a 2D Structural Model can benefit your exploration objective through improved delineation of geologic structure and lithology.
  • Explain why, or why not, a proposed geologic concept will be compatible with all the known geophysical data
