Turbiditic channels evolve continuously in relation to erosion-deposition events. They are often gathered into complexes and display various stacking patterns. These patterns have a direct impact on the connectivity of sand-rich deposits. Being able to reproduce them in stochastic simulations is thus of significant importance. We propose a geometrical and descriptive approach to stochastically...
