  Information - TS1.2 Quantitative Structural Geology: Comparison of model results with natural examples

Event Information
Modern structural geology integrates visualization of natural structures with results from mechanical modeling in order to quantitatively map, model and explain the deformation in the Earth’s lithosphere at all scales. Investigations consider not only the two- and more recently the three-dimensional geometries of naturally deformed rocks but also how structures progressively evolve in time. The use of mechanical structural geology concepts, compared to observations of finite geometries made on different scales (e.g. 3D seismic surveys, wells, outcrops, thin sections), leads to the modeling of natural complex structures, which help to explain and sometimes to predict the progressive deformation of rocks.
In this session we would like to bring together contributions that focus both, quantitative mechanical modeling and/or visualization of natural geological structures at all scales and dimensions.
