Rift TD deposition is sequential, moving from one deposition point to the next.
Fill times for deposition from a particular deposition vector are calculated using:
During simultaneous deposition this may result in some areas filling faster than others.
If this occurs, to maintain the material balance:
•For upstream cyclone deposition, cyclone tailings is distributed using the underflow percentage for the material being deposited/re-distributed i.e. not the percentage underflow for the material specified by a deposition vector.
•Deposition changes the base topography.
•Earlier deposition may impact significant on deposition later in a deposition sequence/cycle.
