We present the first step in the development of a system that would allow geological models to evolve backwards in time. The method of interactive evolutionary computation provides for the inclusion of geological knowledge and expertise in a rigorous mathematical inversion scheme, by simply asking an expert user to visually evaluate different geological models. We demonstrate the potential of the technique for the cases of folding and faulting.
