Description

Geomodeling applies mathematical methods to the unified modeling of the topology, geometry, and physical properties of geological objects. The methodology (gOcad, computer assisted design of geological data) is general, but in this book the author presents a new interpolation method for modeling natural objects that allows application of a wide range of complex data. The audience for the book will be graduate students and practitioners in the earth and environmental sciences.show more

Review quote

"Mallet (Institut National Polytechnique de Lorraine, and participant in the gOcad research project) explains the Discrete Smooth Interpolation (DSI) approach to modelling complex surfaces, which has been developed over the last couple of decades to model geological surfaces and geological volumes affected by tectonic events with overturned folds, salt domes, and reverse faults (the modelling software developed for the car industry couldn't do the job). The DSI approach is now also finding applications in fields such as medicine, anthropology, and the environmental sciences. Coverage includes cellular partitions, tesselations, elements of differential geometry, triangulated surfaces, elements of structural geology, stochastic modeling, and discrete smooth partition."--SciTech Book Newsshow more
