University of Houston
University of Houston, joined the Academic Software Initiative (ASI) in April 2009, not long after its inception, and have recently upgraded to our Standard Academic Package of 20 Move Licenses to sit on a computer network. Their typical workfklow involves digitizing hand drafted cross sections based on bedrock geologic maps then constructing forward models by iteratively adjusting fault geometry in accordance with surface geology.
Move has been used in the following projects:
Ongoing, Balanced cross sections and strain calculations across Laramide-age structures in southwest New Mexico
MSc. Expected 2011, Structural evolution of the Thakkhola graben, Nepal Himalaya.
MSc 2010, Investigation of Laramide deformation in north-central New Mexico and its role in guiding Miocene extension.
MSc 2009, Structural evolution of Brazos-Tusas uplift, north-central New Mexico.
