Sand Body Modeling


Sand Body Modeling: LYNX can create stochastic realizations of sand body objects that are constrained by hard data (wells) and other soft data. The 3-D object modeling in LYNX is capable of handling variations in shorelines both areally and vertically. The user can specify standard geometric sand channel controls for each event such as width, thickness, sinuosity, and direction through statistical descriptions. LYNX is especially powerful in the modeling of near-shore depositional environments with the representation of various forces that control the sand deposition mechanism. Sand objects are generated such that channel sands can incise into the older depositions.
