The 3D modelling of the Earth's subsurface helps reduce costs and improve knowledge for research into: water mineral and energy resources carbon storage natural hazard prediction environmental prediction More about BGS 3D modelling at: http://www.bgs.ac.uk//services/3Dgeology/home.html
Online Training "Master the Geotechnical Module" Register Free Today - http://www.keynetix.com/UTGeoModuleTraining AutoCAD Solid Geology This video was created Using AutoCAD Civil 3D and HoleBASE SI Extension for Civil 3D. The surfaces can also be created with the Autodesk Civil 3D Geotechnical Module This video shows how you can create a Solid Geology Model in AutoCAD Civil 3D by taking two surfaces and extruding them in a certain way. The video goes through the process twice on different geology layers so you can see how to apply it to models with more than one Geology layer. The video finishes by showing how a AutoCAD section plane with addition Jog points can be used to create impressive 3D fence diagrams from the 3D Geology Model. This technique can be used for exporting solid ...

Best descriptive tutorial on generating maps for geologists.
Prior to the initiation of exploration operations geologists often wonder what method of exploration drilling is the most effective and at the same time the least expensive? Core drilling, RC drilling or a combination of these two methods?
The geological maps seen in these visualizations are constructed using data from a publication titled "Geologic Map 180" created by the Utah Geological Survey, a division of the Utah Department of Natural Resources (we have obtained permission from the UGS to use this publication as a basis for our visualization). The maps are authored by Hellmut H. Doelling of the Utah Geological Survey in the year 2001. The elevation surface of the region is modeled from the National Elevation Dataset using 10m spaced data points and Landsat natural color mosaics are applied as surface textures in the non-geographic overlay version of the animation. Our visualization begins with a north-up overhead view of an area of Utah between Green River and Moab. The La Sal mountains are in the lower right portio...
ThreeDify GeoModeler (GeoModeler) is your next generation orebody modeler and specifically engineered to model and visualize large orebodies using a slew of advanced 3D technologies. The 64-bit linear octree compression scheme lends itself to handle large and complex orebodies with the ease and precision needed by today's most demanding geologists and mine planning engineers. GeoModeler provides true 3D volumetric modeling, geostatistical analysis and visualization to help you integrate and transform multiple data sources into the best ore reserve estimates.
The Augmented Reality Sandbox allows students and the public to interact with a miniature landscape, sculpting mountains, valleys, rivers and even volcanoes, with off the shelf readily available parts. Topographic maps are crucial tools used by geologists, geographers and adventurous hikers. A newly-built apparatus at UCLA makes topographic maps fun and interactive for everyone by projecting them in 3D.
In this webinar you will learn how to give new life to old oilfields using the new and upcoming features in GeoGraphix: Create robust 3D geomodels incorporating sequence stratigraphic and petrophysical interpretations Interpret geophysical surfaces, velocity models, and predicted petrophysical inversion attributes Combine geological and geophysical interpretations into a comprehensive geomodel Visualize integrated interpretation and pick new drilling locations in 3D

The Yellowstone plume has been tomographically imaged as a tilted body extending from 80 km depth at the Yellowstone Plateau to 660 km depth beneath western Montana. Geodynamic modeling of the plume finds that the plume is up to 120 K hotter than the surrounding mantle, with a maximum of 2.5% melt and a small buoyancy flux of 0.25 MG/s, properties of a cool, weak plume. Mantle flow modeling is used to constrain the evolution of the hotspot: the Yellowstone plume initially ascended vertically through the mantle beneath the thin, accreted lithosphere of the Columbia Plateau and was responsible for the 17 Ma flood basalts there. At 12 Ma, the plume passed beneath the thicker North American lithosphere and became entrained in eastward upper mantle return flow, resulting in a shift of volcanic ...
