Dionisos is a forward stratigraphic modeling package that can be used to analyze the facies distributions in an isolated carbonate platform. Two grainstone distributions are considered and used as “inspiration” for an unconditioned case study: grainstones around the platform margin and grainstones in the platform center. In one experiment a linear rate of sea-level rise is used and the rate is varied to generate a series of models. In a second experiment a cyclic sea-level curve is added, and the amplitude of the cycles is varied to generate a second series of models.

Platform-margin grainstone facies patterns develop during...
