Loop3D/noddyverse: Noddyverse 1.0 Mark Jessell

Short summary
To robustly train and test automated methods in the geosciences, we need to have access to large numbers of examples where we know the answer. We present a suite of synthetic 3D geological models with their gravity and magnetic responses that allow researchers to test their methods on a whole range of geologically plausible models, thus overcoming one of the fundamental limitations of automation studies.
