In this project, you will use 3D gravity modeling software in an offshore setting to calculate the 3D gravity effect of the bathymetry and several relatively shallow sedimentary layers.
In Project 601, the 3D Bouguer correction was calculated and applied producing Bouguer gravity which is the first step for a qualitative interpretation.
With this project, we now proceed to a quantitative interpretation of all the geology which produces the observed gravity field.
Density and depth control will be introduced from sources such as wells and refraction data.
The model’s geologic interfaces will be manipulated within the constraints of the control data; modeling success may be judged based on the match between the calculated and observed fields.
