Interactive python script for estimating stylolite depth of formation

  • Q.D. (Quinten) Boersma (Creator)



This folder contains the python code and data presented in appendix A of the Thesis: Natural Fracture Network Characterization: Numerical Modelling, Outcrop Analysis and Subsurface data written by Q.D. Boersma in 2020.
The thesis can be found on
The code can used for conducting a fourier transform analysis on stylolite data and estimate the crossover length between longer and shorter wavelengths
Further, the depth of formation can be calculated using equations presented by Ebner et al., 2009 (Stress sensitivity of stylolite morphology).
The code has succesfully been used by Igbokwe et al., 2020 (Morphology and topology of dolostone lithons in the regional Carboneras Fault Zone, Southern Spain).
For a proper utilization of the code, basic knowledge of python scripting is expected.
