Strata: A Basin Modeling Tool

Strata is a basin modeling tool package composed of four programs:

  • Setbasin is the pre-processor, for loading and editing the basin’s parameters.
  • Simbasin is the processor, for simulating the basin defined by those parameters.
  • Plotbasin is the post-processor, for displaying the simulation’s results.
  • Filmbasin is a special utility that interfaces the processing and post-processing to make a movie.

It should work on UNIX and UNIX-like systems in general; Strata is not available for other systems (e.g. Macintosh, Windows).

Strata was last revised December ’97, bringing it to version 2.14.
