dc.description.abstractAbstract. The formation of stratigraphy in shallow marine environments has long been an important topic within the geologic community. Although many advances have been made in the field of forward stratigraphic modelling (FSM), there are still some shortcomings to the existing models. In this work, the authors present our recent development and application of Sedapp: a new non-linear open-source R code for FSM. This code uses an integrated depth-distance related function as the expression of the transport coefficient to underpin the FSM with more along-shore details. In addition to conventional parameters, a negative-feedback sediment supply rate and a differentiated deposition-erosion ratio were also introduced. All parameters were implemented in a non-linear manner. Sedapp is a 3D (2DH) tool while also capable of 2D (1DH) scenarios. Two simplified case studies were conducted. The results show that Sedapp can not only assist in geologic interpretation, but is also an efficient tool for internal architecture predictions.
