Many important geotechnical issues (e.g., groundwater supply and contamination, subsurface waste disposal, hydrocarbon exploration and production) require a detailed understanding of porosity and permeability in subsurface clastic formations (= reservoir quality). Reservoir quality depends on the size, shape, and packing of sand grains as they are originally deposited, as well as diagenetic changes during burial. Obtaining enough samples to fully characterize the target formation is prohibitively expensive or physically impossible. Therefore, reservoir quality estimates must be extrapolated from analogues (± sparse samples) or derived from models. Forward-modeling approaches to predicting diagenetic effects on reservoir quality are well established, but they...
