Simulating realistic sedimentary bodies while conditioning all the available data is a major topic of research. We present a new method to simulate the channel morphologies resulting from the deposition processes. It relies on a formal grammar system, the Lindenmayer system, or L-system. The L-system puts together channel segments based on user-defined rules and parameters. The succession of...
