Rob Lander's primary interest is in understanding the controls on diagenetic processes in clastic rocks and using this understanding to develop accurate models of rock properties away from well control and through geologic time. He is the inventor or co-inventor of several simulation systems for diagenesis and reservoir quality prediction.

  • 11651 We have an unprecedented ability to realistically depict the spatial distributions of lithofacies in the subsurface thanks to developments in sequence stratigraphy, sedimentology, structural geology, geostatistics, and geophysics. As important as these developments have been, however, they in themselves have a limited ability to accurately predict rock properties–particularly in regions with high thermal exposures and restricted well control. We are developing a next-generation modeling platform that rigorously simulates processes in 3D at the grain scale. This 3D approach has the potential to provide unique predictive models of pore network geometries and grain contact properties for rocks in undrilled areas. Model the Rock!
