ArcGIS Application in Geologic Structure Modeling
Track: Water Resources
Authors: Sarah Eason, Sarah Eason Watson, Ned Troshanov
In the 2016 version, the top and base aquifer surfaces were interpreted using available well log data, TNRIS NEDs and both USGS and UT-BEG geologic maps. The structural framework was updated using slope analysis. Processes used in Spatial Analyst were similar to previous versions, with the addition of new 3D Analyst processes and creation of cross sections using a new method developed in-house. It could be applied in structural geology, lithostratigraphy, hydrogeology, oil and gas exploration.
