The aim of this study is modeling Permian deposits erosionof the Dnipro-Donets depression. The Perm system is characterized by intensive tectonic and climatic changes, that influenced paleo-depositional environment. Permian deposits are represented only in the Asselian, Sakmarian and Artinskian stages in the Dnieper-Donets Basin. Deposits of the Guadalupian and Lopingian series are eroded. The Permian system is represented by terrigenous sediments, which gradually changed by homogenic, and then eroded. Schlumberger software PetroMod 1D was used for simulation. As a result, three burial history models were obtained. Each model reflects different intensity and time when erosion occurred. The most likely model was chosen based on the history of the basin development.
