The Forres GSI3D model was constructed to represent the superficial geology of the area highlighted in Figure 1. The superficial deposits model provides a calculated model framework for Zoom ground water modelling in relation to alleviating and preventing the threat of flooding in the River Findhorn catchment area, (MacDonald et al., 2008[1]; Vounaki et al., 2011[2]). The model is suitable for scales around 1:10 000 or a lower resolution, down to a depth of -50 m OD.
