I have divided geologic modeling for petroleum into following:

Basin Modeling Source Rock Modeling Structure and Trap Modeling Reservoir Modeling


Geological modelling isn't just used in oil and gas. Most ore deposits are now modelled in 3D. The definitions in the main article can certainly be expanded to get away from a narrow seismic tomography definition. Rolinator



Geological modelling is now standard practice in many Geological Surveys and in the British Geological Survey most models currently built are in Superficial Deposits (Quaternary and Tertiary) for the main purpose of water resource management. I suggest this article will need some updating in that respect. I am also looking to work on the pages Geological Survey and Geology to bring out this change in practice

Fair use rationale for Image:BGS syn sections York.jpg[edit]

Nuvola apps important.svg

Image:BGS syn sections York.jpg is being used on this article. I notice the image page specifies that the image is being used under fair use but there is no explanation or rationale as to why its use in this Wikipedia article constitutes fair use. In addition to the boilerplate fair use template, you must also write out on the image description page a specific explanation or rationale for why using this image in each article is consistent with fair use.

Please go to the image description page and edit it to include a fair use rationale. Using one of the templates at Wikipedia:Fair use rationale guideline is an easy way to insure that your image is in compliance with Wikipedia policy, but remember that you must complete the template. Do not simply insert a blank template on an image page.

If there is other fair use media, consider checking that you have specified the fair use rationale on the other images used on this page. Note that any fair use images uploaded after 4 May, 2006, and lacking such an explanation will be deleted one week after they have been uploaded, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you.

Links to software vendors[edit]

Mwtoews makes a good point about all these external links (I've added my share). What I think we really need is sections covering each of the types of software package, describing them and their use in a generic way, with all the software vendor links perhaps relegated to an external links section, if not removed altogether. I'll try to find the time to start the process. Mikenorton (talk) 16:48, 9 January 2008 (UTC)

With the subject matter in this article, discussion of software is critical. One idea I have is to keep notable software (typically public domain/open source codes, or software that is truly innovative in it's field and not reproducing similar functionality as other software) and remove non-notable codes (particularly if they have the same functionality as other "more notable" products). Ideally, if the software is notable, it should have a wikipedia article and not a link to an external website (see the "Groundwater modelling" section). Should we assess what should be kept as "notable" and start article stubs to those articles? This way we can remove all software external links (since they would be available in the "notable" articles?) Any thoughts? +mt 18:37, 9 January 2008 (UTC)

Image copyright problem with Image:BGS 3d uk model.jpg[edit]

The image Image:BGS 3d uk model.jpg is used in this article under a claim of fair use, but it does not have an adequate explanation for why it meets the requirements for such images when used here. In particular, for each page the image is used on, it must have an explanation linking to that page which explains why it needs to be used on that page. Please check

  • That there is a non-free use rationale on the image's description page for the use in this article.
  • That this article is linked to from the image description page.

Current page organization and section content[edit]

The geological modelling component section is currently quite focused on oil & gas geomodels. For more generality, I would like to rearrange it into: 1. Structural Framework 2. Grids (including reservoir grids, tetrahedral grids, etc) 3. Petrophysical modeling (including geostatistics as the technique, and facies, rock types, poro/perm, Saturation, grades as examples).

Maybe we could have an "applications" section where typical examples in hydrocarbon, mining, groundwater, seismic hazard could be described?

Last, I don't think links to groundwater modeling packages is very appropriate here, because these software are focused on flow and not on geological modeling.

Name change??[edit]

I know this is maybe a little petty, but should "geologic modelling" be changed to "geological modelling"? Most people on this talk page have used "geological modelling" and google agrees with them (28,000 vs 249,000). Nwhit (talk) 11:29, 28 February 2012 (UTC)

Geologic/Geological is normally a US English/British English thing (although there is the United States Geological Survey). However, if the common name is Geological modelling, we should certainly change the name. Mikenorton (talk) 14:03, 28 February 2012 (UTC)
Oh right, I thought it might be something like that, thanks for getting back so quick Nwhit (talk) 14:21, 28 February 2012 (UTC)
