Full description

The ICONS Atlas provides online access to global crustal and lithospheric structure data for 242 intercontinental sedimentary basins.

The ICONS Atlas was created by Dr Christian Heine as part of a PhD project investigating the formation and evolution of intracontinental basins. The ICONS Atlas combines information about crustal structure, plate kinematics and mantle dynamics in one coherent HTML-based presentation. The aim is to provide quantitative constraints for next-generation basin modeling approaches which integrate deep-earth dynamics, plate tectonics and lithospheric modeling. 

The full version of the ICONS Atlas uses a PostGIS geospatial database and a series of Python and XML based workflows to compute grids and tie plate tectonic data to mantle convection models. All software tools used within the ICONS Atlas are open-source and utilise non-proprietary file formats.
