SimPEG.utils.model_builder.create_layers_model(cell_centers, layer_tops, layer_values)[source]#

Create physical property model consisting of a set of infinite horizontal layers.

cell_centers(n_cells, dim) numpy.ndarray or discretize.base.BaseMesh

A mesh or its gridded cell center locations

layer_tops(n_layer) numpy.ndarray

Elevation values (z +ve up) for the top of each layer. Layers are defined from top to bottom. The first value can be very large if the top layer (e.g. air) extends to infinity.

layer_values(n_layer) numpy.ndarray

Physical property value for each layer from top to bottom.

(n_cells) numpy.ndarray

Cell-centered physical property model for the mesh.
