This project used multiple approaches to the prediction of reservoir architecture in slope channels, including their associated levees and other thin beds. The philosophy was to use subsurface data, modern systems, outcrop data and numerical simulations to calibrate quantitative architectural models for canyons, channel fills and levees. It leveraged previous outcrop and modeling work undertaken at Aberdeen under the Slopes consortium, a PhD studentship on the Buzzard field in the North Sea (completed 2013), and previous consortium-funded outcrop studies in Turkey. It also extended ichnological models across the deepwater environment. These studies have been extended across the deepwater environment in PRAX-2.
