We are pleased to announce the donation of the MOVE software package to the Department of Geosciences by the Scotland-based Petroleum Experts Limited. This industry-standard software package is valued at $2.18 million and provides tools for 3D analysis and geophysical and structural modeling of deformation of the Earth's crust.

Tools in the software package aid in cross section construction, three-dimensional model building, kinematic restoration, geomechanical modeling, fracture studies, and stress analysis.

We deeply appreciate the donation of this software and the opportunity to make MOVE available to faculty and students for research and teaching.
