Dig Deep with Cross Sections in Surfer

Geologic cross sections are linear representations of underground geology. Cross sections help to gain an understanding of the thickness and relationships between successions of different rock types or varying layers in the subsurface.


Surfer's profile created from three surfaces. The surfaces are shown in 3D as well as with a contour map.

Join customer support specialist, Rachel Krueger, for this free webinar where you'll become a pro at modeling your subsurface data in Surfer. You'll leave this webinar ready to slice through your data and create cross sections by utilizing the profile tool, the slice tool, and existing polylines in a Base layer.

This webinar will cover the following:

  • Using the Profile tool on one map layer
  • Using the Profile tool on multiple 3D surfaces
  • Creating profiles from any polyline in a Base layer
  • Creating a cross section using the Slice command
  • Creating profiles with vector layers


Who is this webinar for?

  • Petroleum E&P
  • Hydrologists and Hydrogeologists
  • Environmental Engineers
  • Researchers and Academics in Earth Sciences

Modeling Thickness Variations with Surfer 101

Isopach maps are often used in geology to illustrate thickness variations between two layers, such as the top and bottom of a coal seam or stratigraphic layer. If you have surfaces defining the elevation of the top and bottom of a geologic unit, you can use Surfer to create Isopach or isochore maps.

Join technical support specialist, Drew, for our next free webinar where he will show you how to use Surfer’s powerful new tools to delineate the true vertical thickness and true stratigraphic thickness of a structural unit to generate both types of maps.

Specifically, the presentation covers the following topics:

  • The difference between Isopach and Isochore maps
  • Using Surfer’s new Isopach tool to create both Isopach and Isochore maps
  • Visualize the Isopach maps using contour layers and 3D surfaces
  • Use Surfer’s Grid Volume tool to calculate area and volume between surfaces (with varying grid geometry!)
  • Extract volume calculations between layers within a specific polygon boundary


Who is this webinar for?

  • Construction and Engineering
  • Geologists
  • Petroleum E&P
  • Environmental Services
  • And more!
