Geomodeling has proliferated among earth science and engineering professionals as a body of techniques, software packages, and workflows for subsurface reservoir characterization. Although not a recognized professional discipline or university degree option, geomodeling is a multidisciplinary subject with a growing technical community. Geomodeling is treated as an enabling technical field and focal point in the petroleum industry subsurface teams, with major software development dedicated to the subject and practitioners assuming the role and title. The broad subject typically draws from the fields of geology, geophysics, geostatistics, petrophysics, reservoir engineering, and increasingly geomechanics, computer science, and data analytics. The field of...
