The Getech Globe Tectonics Module underpins our palaeogeographies and provides explorationists with a consistent, technically robust and audited structural and tectonic framework, crustal architecture and Global Plate Model.
The structure and tectonic framework layer is generated from a fresh interpretation of our unique Global Gravity and Magnetic database, along with Landsat imagery, SRTM topography, neotectonics, public domain seismics and geological maps.
- All our interpretations are attributed within the ArcGIS™ layers and this provides a unique searchable database of what we have done and, more importantly, how and why we have done it.
- The structures are built with an activation history, which allows us to assess the impact of active or dormant features on the palaeoenvironments at any of the mapped Stages.
- This analysis, combined with more focused modelling, enables us to build a global crustal architecture and plate polygon layer. This is augmented by our latest work to develop a global depth-to-basement map and the associated crustal thickness calculations.
- Getech’s Global Plate Model is a unique global plate solution that is the product of years of detailed analysis of the neotectonic and structural kinematic framework, combined with in-house research and development. The solution is not static, but is updated regularly through plate model builds for various Regional Reports.
