Topology of Geology in 1D & 2D as a 3D geomodelling constraint Supervisors: MWJ, MDL (see above).Topological constraints such as fault relationships, stratigraphy and magmatic intrusions form vital inputs to 3D geological modelling. Topology often defines the accepted tectonic scenario ascribed to a region, however are not always well-understood or constrained. Due to sparse and uncertain geological observations, multiple topologies are often possible for a given region, though we only ever consider the one thought to the most plausible. This project will investigate the use of the spatial and temporal topology of borehole and map data as constraints for 3D geological modelling to explore the full-extent of geological possibility from our geoscientific datasets.
