Read e-book online 3-D Structural Geology: A Practical Guide to Quantitative PDF

By Richard H. Groshong

Geological buildings are 3 dimensional, but tend to be represented through, and - terpreted from, outcrop maps and constitution contour maps, either one of that are curved two-dimensional surfaces. Maps plus serial sections, known as 2½-D, offer a more in-depth method of 3 dimensionality. computing device expertise now allows geological interpretations to be constructed from the start in a completely 3 dim- sional setting. totally three-D geological versions permit a lot better interpre- tions and interpretations which are a lot more uncomplicated to proportion with different geologists and with most people. This publication offers an outline of recommendations for developing structural interpretations in 2-D, 2½-D and three-D environments; for interpolating - tween and extrapolating past the keep an eye on issues; and for validating the ultimate int- pretation. The underlying philosophy is that constructions are 3-dimensional sturdy our bodies and that facts from during the constitution, even if in 2-D or 3-D layout, may be built-in into an internally constant 3-D interpretation. it really is assumed that almost all clients of this publication will do their paintings on a working laptop or computer. C- sequently, the booklet offers quantitative structural equipment and strategies which are designed to be used with spreadsheets, mapping software program, and third-dimensional c- puter-graphics courses. The publication is usually meant to supply the heritage for figuring out what interpretive software program, for instance, a working laptop or computer contouring p- gram, does instantly. such a lot options are provided in either a conventional layout applicable for paper, pencil, and a pocket calculator, and in quantitative layout to be used with spreadsheets and computer-graphics or computer-aided-design programs.

Example text

After Cherry 1990; Thomas 1986) contacts are digitized, they can be visualized as part of the 3-D model (Fig. 5), edited and otherwise manipulated digitally. The geologic map of the Blount Springs area (Figs. 5) will provide the data for an ongoing example of the process of creating and validating a structure contour map. The map area is located along the Sequatchie anticline at the southern end of the Appalachian fold-thrust belt and is the frontal anticline of the fold-thrust belt. 3 Wells The location of points in a well are measured in well logs with respect to the elevation of the wellhead and are usually given as positive numbers.

Folds produced by an unequal distribution of forces in transverse contraction (Fig. 22) are termed forced folds (Stearns 1978). Forced folds tend to be round to blocky or irregular in map view. The major control on the form of the fold is the rheology of the forcing member (Fig. 26). , crystalline basement) leads to narrow fault boundaries at the base of the structure and strain that is highly localized in the zone above the basement fault. A soft unit between a stiff forcing member and the cover sequence will cause the deformation to be disharmonic.

3c) L is found from the Pythagorean theorem: L = [(x2 – x1)2 + ((y2 – y1)2 + (z2 – z1)2]1/2 . 4) Substitute s = L – r into Eq. 5b) z = (rz2 – rz1 + Lz1) / L . 5c) If the well is straight between the upper and lower points, L will be equal to the log distance. If L is not equal to the log distance, then the well is not straight and the calculated value of L will give the more internally consistent answer. More precise location of the point will require definition of the curvature of the well between the control points.
