Abstract

SedPak software provides a conceptual framework for modelling the sedimentary fill of basins by visualizing stratal geometries as they are produced between sequence boundaries. It is designed to model and reconstruct clastic and carbonate sediment geometries which are produced as a response to changing rates of tectonic movements, eustasy, and sedimentation. The simulation enables the evolution of the sedimentary fill of a basin to be tracked, defines the chronostratigraphic framework for the deposition of these sediments, and illustrates the relationship between sequences and systems. The possibilities of use the SedPak software to simulate infilling of a sedimentary basin and to demonstrate the basics principles of sequence stratigraphy are shown on the example of Upper Badenian deposits in the Vienna Basin.
