2D lobe stacking


As part of my PhD thesis, I am coding a program (.net Framework, C#) that simulates deposition of lobes in 2D. These models are rule-based and very simple at the moment. However, they accept a wide range of inputs, that allow the generation of complex geometries that are "somehow realistic" (see more below!). The accepted inputs at the moment are:


- Window model size and grid size

- Lobe characteristics (height and width) based in an absolute number or probabilistic distributions

- Shale covering

- Compensational stacking, based on a binomial distribution.

- Aggradation of lobes, with slight lateral shift

- Amalgamation of lobes

- Periodic boundary conditions

- Connectivity analysis (biggest cluster)

- And no less important: a pretty zoom that allows us to see things in detail!




Geology Hangman - Windows 32/64

This program runs under Windows +32 bits. Made on python (libraries random, string and sys), py2exe and geology dictionary from GeologyNet, it is the classic hangman game but only with geologic words. It has been made by a rework of code provided in a Problem Set in MITx 6.00.1. You can edit it but always give credit to previous authors, specially Massachusetts Institute of Technology and GeologyNet. Creative Commons 4.0, BY.
