Geological Research Methods is about the application of knowledge in geology. The module will introduce you to independent field working and develop geological field mapping skills in complex terranes. Your field work understanding will be assisted by the use of digital geological techniques, in particular the use of vector graphic drawing.
A brief outline of the methodology. GSI3D utilises a digital elevation model, surface geological linework and downhole borehole and geophysical data to enable the geologist to construct cross sections by correlating boreholes and the outcrops to produce a geological fence diagram. Mathematical interpolation between the nodes along the drawn sections and the limits of the units produces a solid.
