  1. Dear Alison, 

    thanks for following up my post, great news! I am so excited to try that new feature in the coming versions of Rockworks.

    I'll appreciate to have any further information about it.



  2. Dear Rockworks Developers,


    In some cases, a lithological model can replicate complex geology and aquifer heterogenities better than stratigraphic models. Rockworks is already integrated with an attractive tool requiers more attention and effort for further development. As already known, Rockworks are being used by hydrogeologists for decades, helping by interpreting and modeling their hydrochemical and hydrological data, thus, it would be great to see type of link or coupling between Rockworks and available groundwater modeling GUI (e.g. Aquaveo GMS, GW Vistas, Visual Modflow..). So far, the Export - Modflow function utilize a .Dis dimesnion file to export different zones of each specified G Value, but constructing a conceptual model requers thicking about different way to do that.. So it would be so great to make it possible to export a lithological model into another Modflow format (e.g. .NAM, .IN ...etc).


    thanks for your consideration

  3. Dear Tom,

    thanks for your support.

    I finished the model yesterday and I pleased to share you the result I don't know why There was a problem processing the uploaded file. Please contact us for assistance "

    Actually, I based on the tools: Raster calculation, Polygon clip, and substitute surface (for the Neogene and Paleogene).






  4. Dear Tom,

    thank you so much for your help.

    I've just few questions:


    1. Should I deactivate the option/ replace top suface with ground surface?

    2. Do you construct the Quaternary top and bottom based on boreholes elevation?

    3. Could you please provide me with the your modified version of the project for comparison purpose.

    please accept my sincere appreciation.



  5. Hi Tom,


    Thanks for your support. In the southeastern corner, the yellow Neogene deposits pinched out of the Paleogene formation once I activate the maximum interpolation distance to 20%. However, I tired with 5 and 10%, but the result was a clustered small circles surrounding boreholes.

    I'll try to snap all boreholes to the surface grid elevation and see if it can solve the problem.

    I will send you a copy if it doesn't work.




  6. Dear Tom,


    Unfortunately, results of zero-thickness option didn't provide good results (almost no changes).

    I  increased the cutoff to 1, 20% maximum interpolation distance. The interpolation continues trends for the Quaternary deposits!

    For each borehole I inserted new stratigraphic formation belongs to the Quaternary as follows:

              Depth to Top               Depth to Base           Formation 

    1        0                                  0                               Quaternary

    2        0                                  50                             Neogene

    3        50                                100                           Aquitanian 

    4        100                               200                          Paleogene 


    The depths measured from the elevation.


    please any advice?









  7. Hi Tom,


    thank you so much for your quick response.

    I would try the second option which seems more reasonable (giving zero thicknesses). Unfortunately, polygon clipping option requires a lot of post-processing and time for smoothing grids.

    I think the most challenging issue in Rockworks is how to replicate complex stratigraphic succession. So it would be so appreciated when Rockware put Stratigraphic package on the subsequent development plan.

    I'll tell you about the results.


    Thanks :)

  8. Dear Rockworks technical team,


    I'm going to use Rockworks 17 to construct 3D stratigraphic model determined generally by 3 main layers from the top to base as follows:

    Quaternary/ alluvium 

    Neogene/ Limestone 

    Paleogene/ Clayey Limestone

    Grid and model dimensions are: 100 x 100 x 5

    The Quaternary sediments fill the depressions of the model.


    Modeling option:

    -Inverse Distance was selected as interpolation algorithm with additional options, including Decluster (Average), Smooth (2x2), Faulted (2D Fault).

    -Modeling Sequence Base-to-Top (Onlap)

    -Constraining Surface: Truncate Units above ground surface/ Replace top surface with ground surface

    -Hide thin Zones: 0.005



    After successful running the interpolation, the Quaternary sediment extends over the whole region despite no Quaternary deposits are recorded in the boreholes.

    I tried to increase the model resolution, playing with cutoff value, using different interpolation algorithms.. but nothing is changed. (Please have a look on the screenshot)


    any suggestions to bypass this issue?






  9. Hi RockWare Forum members and support team,


    after manual contraction of a 3D Stratigraphic model (Advanced Stratigraphic modeling), it is common to see cutting edges around the boundaries of each layer. What is the best way to smooth those edges and minimize the difference between layers? I usually use Grid Editing tool, but it is rather difficult and tedious in some complex cases particularly in higher resolution models. Any suggestions or protocol to follow solving such issue?


    all the best,



  10. Hi Mitch,

    thank you very much for your replay,

    the graphic card in my laptop is NVIDIA Quadro 1000M (2GB) plus Intel HD 3000 2GB

    the color adjusted to true color with 32bit

    I just tried to change the display resolution, but it didn't work. However, this problem appears only with RockWork16 (all other software working well even Rockwork 15).

    I will try to change the color setting and inform you soon

    thanks :)

  11. Hi all,

    I am wondering if you faced such a problem regarding the GUI running RockWork 16 with a high screen resolution of 1920 x 1080?

    when I start Rockwork the main menu and other windows show black spot of polygons in the background like distortions so that I couldn't read texts behind them.

    I would appreciate you experience to solve this issue


    I am using:

    Windows 7 pro 64 bit

    screen resolution 1920x1080

    12GB RAM

    Intel i7- 2860QM

    500 GB SSD


  12. Hi experts,

    i would like to ask you if possible to calculate the volumetric of I-Data model based on the solid model filter or G-data filtering option for the disribution of As for instant in water body (e.g. calculate the volume of contaminated water with As for the range of concentration between 1 to 1.5 ppb in a Lake).
