About this book

This book provides a comprehensive introduction to techniques for quantitative subsidence analysis and visualization with example applications. Subsidence analysis is an essential step to understand basin evolution through geologic time and space in the study of sediments and sedimentary basins. Quantifying techniques have been developed and applied in many basin research projects to evaluate total, tectonic and thermal subsidence. They are also a pre-requisite for basin evolution modelling. Recent studies have applied visualization techniques to understand regional subsidence contexts and trends, which confirmed that three-dimensional visualization of the basin subsidence is highly helpful to gain insight into basin evolution. In this book, we show how geoscience and computer science can be effectively combined in advanced basin analysis, especially in terms of basin subsidence. Each type of subsidence analysis is introduced with example applications. In particular we present a study of the Vienna basin using BasinVis, a MATLAB-based program for analyzing and visualizing basin subsidence. Given its breadth of coverage, this book will benefit students in undergraduate and postgraduate courses and provide helpful information for research projects and industry applications.

About the authors

Eun Young Lee has conducted multiple research projects in the field of ‘basin analysis and modelling’ in Korea, Austria and Australia. The projects have applied various research techniques including subsidence analysis to understand basin architecture and evolution. She was a shipboard scientist of International Ocean Discovery Program (IODP) Expedition 356 and Expedition 369, and is currently conducting projects to understand sedimentary basins, offshore Western Australia.
Johannes Novotny is a specialist in scientific visualization and has participated in geological and medical research projects in Austria and the United States. Recently he has explored the use of virtual reality systems in scientific data analysis.
Michael Wagreich has worked as a sedimentologist and stratigrapher in academy. He has conducted several research projects on basin analysis and basin modelling, especially using subsidence analysis. Other recent research focuses on past sea-level changes and the Anthropocene.
