This project is now closed. This web page will remain open now but will be closed at a later point.
Development a fully searchable web based repository of geological outcrop data, for clastic sedimentary systems.
1. Building a web based query tool which will allow outcrop data to be searched directly over the internet. The web interface will also allow the upload of new datasets as they become available. The web interface will also include a full overview of the outcrop standards, guidelines to facies interpretation and modelling and virtual outcrops.
2. A global study of geometric data and facies occurrence from modern systems, using publicly-available remote sensing data.
3. Populate the database with outcrop data made available by sponsors and partners.
Plans for 2014
Continue building search tool
Build upload tool
Encourage external partners to contribute old datasets
Initiate study of modern systems
