Three cases are shown. The first case is a 2 dimensional
model, simply to illustrate the BHGM response of a simple
salt model and show the use of the density difference trace.
The second case shows a large overhang modeled in 2.5
dimensions. The salt extends into and out of the section by 1
km each way. Sediments surround the salt on all sides. The
densities of the sediments gradually grade higher with
increasing depth and are shown on the left side of the
section. Case 3 is similar to Case 2 with less overhang.
Case 1 - Response of salt dome when
surrounding sediments are uniform density.
The BHGM density response shows a higher
density than the sediment density as shown by the blue
adjacent higher density salt.gamma gamma density trace
