Geodynamic modelling procedure

The procedure of a geodynamic modelling study encompasses everything from the assemblage of both a physical and a numerical models based on a verified numerical code, to the design of a simplified model setup based on a certain modelling philosophy, the validation of the model through careful testing, the unbiased analysis of the produced model output, the oral, written, and graphical communication of the modelling approach and results, and the management of both software and data. Constant (re-)evaluation and potential subsequent adjustments of previous steps are key, and indeed necessary, throughout this process.
