Describe processes represented by the model Erosion, transport and deposition of sediments (terrestrial -> deep-marine). Carbonate production. Complex tectonics (growth faults, salt deformation).
Describe key physical parameters and equations Water-driven diffusion equation for transport.

Erosion controlled by water flow and shear stress. Carbonate production function of water depth, wave energy, ecology. Complex tectonics are user-defined geometrical deformation.

Describe length scale and resolution constraints length : 10s - 100s of kilometers

resolution : 1 km
