Geognostics Develops GEM+SEEBASE® 4D GIS
Geognostics, exclusive provider of the Geognostics Earth Model (GEM), has announced the expansion of its technical library and service delivery, including the recent acquisition of Frogtech Geoscience’s IP assets. Geognostics now holds exclusive worldwide rights to the SEEBASE® technology and licensing rights to a portfolio of regional studies, databases and technologies.
GEM is the most detailed global plate model available, while SEEBASE is a dynamic depth-to-basement interpretation applying the company’s global geoscientific experience to the integration of basement geology, structure and stratigraphy with all available constraining datasets. Together, these capabilities provide a one-stop shop to gain holistic, cutting-edge insights into continent to prospect-scale basin systems and their resource potential.
By combining GEM and SEEBASE in a 4D GIS environment, Geognostics has produced a series of marginscale, time-slice-based plate reconstructions. These palinspastic maps include SEEBASE®, basement terranes, basin outlines, sediment thickness and tectonic event maps, delivered in GIS format. They provide key quantitative inputs for basin models and support a palaeogeographic interpretation of source kitchens, reservoir sweet spots, subsidence phases and trap development.
Geognostics’ services are available as client-tailored studies, or through licensed multi-client products, including reduced-price bundles of Frogtech Geoscience SEEBASE studies.
