Terrestrial LIDAR data were acquired at four sites in the Acacus Formation in southwestern Libya in order to better understand the sedimentary architecture and to create outcrop models to aid ongoing subsurface exploration. The outcrop models comprise up to 8 individual scans merged to produce panels up to 1.2 km wide and c. 200 m high. The panels highlight the gross stratigraphic architecture including shallowing- and coarsening-upwards cycles, major channel bodies, and subtle prograding units. The scan resolution was chosen to resolve the bed-scale stacking that typifies hydrocarbon reservoirs in this formation. Surfaces and facies observed in the outcrops...
