A digital, spatial, geological model of the Miocene in Jylland, Denmark
A major hydrogeological programme has been carried out to map the Miocene succession in central and southern Jylland (Fig. 1). The Miocene deposits comprise several aquifers with potential drinking water resources and have been investigated by drilling and acquisition of seismic data integrated with sedimentology and biostratigraphy. Scharling et al. (2009) described a 3D hydrogeological model that covers part of the onshore Danish Miocene deposits. The model was based on a sequence-stratigraphic approach and led to a better understanding of the geological architecture of the aquifers than traditional lithofacies models. Hence it was decided to establish a digital, spatial, geological model covering the entire onshore Miocene succession (Kristensen et al. 2010).
