PyBacktrack 1.3 is now available as a Python package and a Docker image.

The documentation is available at:

Changes since version 1.2:
• Supports Python 3:
o please also use the recent pyGPlates Python 3 release.
• Added the following output columns:
o dynamic_topography:
 change in dynamic topography elevation since present day
o decompacted_depth:
 depth from fully decompacted layers (using surface porosity only)
 as if no portion of any layer had ever been buried
o decompacted_sediment_rate:
 fully decompacted surface layer thickness divided by its deposition interval
• Option to force continental subsidence model:
o if well site is in age grid (oceanic crust) but known to be on continental crust.
• Option to ignore total sediment thickness grid:
o if well site is known to be drilled to basement.
• Fixed missing last row of output:
o when well depth exceeds total sediment thickness.
• Fixed bug in syn-rift subsidence equation:
o affected tectonic subsidence by less than 1%.
