Digital Rendering of Sedimentary Relief Peels

Project Cover Image


Sedimentary-relief peels from field environments have been a primary observational technique for decades. Hundreds (likely thousands) of specimens of variable quality exist, representing a wide range of acquisition techniques, and depositional processes and sedimentary environments (e.g., Martinius and van den Berg, 2011). Peels are traditionally used to recognize and explain depositional processes and sedimentary textures qualitatively. This project is an effort to digitally capture sedimentary heterogeneity information represented by these unique specimens that are larger than core-scale, but smaller than reservoir simulation cell size. Digitally capturing this information allows for diverse quantitative analyses or application to flow simulation.
