Title: Process for constructing three-dimensional geologic models having adjustable geologic interfaces

Abstract: A process for constructing a three-dimensional geologic model of a subsurface earth volume in which the positions of geologic interfaces within the model are adjusted as the model is being constructed. The resulting geologic model should be consistent with all available geologic and geophysical information regarding the subsurface earth volume, including information regarding the spatial attributes of geologic interfaces within said subsurface earth volume.
