The first day will be devoted to a theoretical introduction of 3D geologogical modelling by P. Renard and G. Courrioux with a special emphasis on the principle and the mathematics of the implicit method used in 3D geomodeller given by J.-P. Chiles. Some examples and demonstrations will illustrate the method.
DAY 2 (August, 28th)
Morning. Hands-on exercise with geomodeller 3D to learn the basic steps in creating a 3D model.
Afternoon. Field excursion. Presentation of the local geology and sedimentology. Introduction to data acquisition.
DAY 3 to DAY 7 (August, 29th - to September, 2nd )
Work in groups of 3 participants. Mapping and data acquistion followed by 3D modelling in the afternoons and evenings every day. Group discussions: exchange of experiences, problems, and solutions. Evening sessions from the teaching staff with presentations related either to the geology of the area or to the modeling aspects.
DAY 8 (September, 3rd)
Wrap-up of the workshop. Presentation of the results by the participants and group discussion. Closing ceremony.
