Deepwater Systems Reloaded: Advances on our understanding on submarine lobe deposits

Yvonne T. Spychala , David M. Hodgson , Joris T. Eggenhuisen , Stephen Flint , Christopher Stevenson , Mike Tilston , Ian A. Kane , Amadine Prelat & Florian Pohl
Submarine lobes are high aspect ratio sand-rich deposits that are fed by turbidity currents and debris flows via channels in deep-marine settings. As a major component of submarine fans, they represent 1) an important archive of palaeo-environmental change, 2) sinks for organic carbon and pollutants, and 3) are also of economic interest. Classic models describe lobes as purely depositional tabular sheets that thin and fine from an apex. Over the last decade, outcrop studies, numerical...

Uncertainty and risk analysis in basin and stratigraphic modelling: the response surface approach

Samer Bou Daher & Alcide Thebault
Any attempt at modelling natural phenomena includes a number of numerical assumptions on which we have little or no constraints. Basin and forward stratigraphic modelling are methodologies that aim at reproducing the history of sedimentary basins and their internal complexities. As are all deterministic models, these models are characterized by the none-uniqueness of their results. Meaning very different models can equally honor the calibration data. The traditional approach to such a problematic is a Monte-Carlo...
