Abstract

The present work deals with the application of subsidence analysis to the Crotone Basin through the application of a software written ad-hoc by using the. NET framework. The application of this software called Decompaction Glorious Trend (DeGloT) has been tested on a case study along the Ionian coastal plain of Calabria, in the Crotone Basin, Southern Italy. The study area includes the stratigraphic infill of the Neogene to Quaternary Crotone Basin as an example of a thick stratigraphic succession deposited within a progressive changing nature of subsiding region. Because of regional tectonic events, this area is characterized by a complex geological and evolutionary history recorded in this sedimentary basin. The Crotone Basin experienced an alternation of uplift and subsiding processes. We used DeGloT software for the subsidence analysis, by using well controlled dataset from a large number of well log for hydrocarbon exploration and stratigraphic and structural architecture from both surface seismic profiles and outcrop occurrence. A description of the software logic and several examples of its usage are provided. The historical evolution of the subsidence analysis and the essential theorical information are summarized in order to understand the requested input and the resulting output of the software. Even if the software was designed for the Crotone Basin, it can be used for applicability to other sedimentary basins.
