Structural Geology and Tectonics

Structural geology

Structural geologists work out how and why rocks are deformed by Earth stresses. We work on the large structures of mountain belts and also on microstructures seen in mineral grains. Working at the larger scale, we study the processes that drive plate tectonics.

The following faculty members have research projects in structural geology and tectonics.

Dr. Tom Calon

 

Dr. Aphrodite Indares

Dr. Toby Rivers

Deep crustal structure and tectonics of Proterozoic orogens, especially the Grenville Province

Dr. Jeremy Hall

(NW Atlantic rifted continental margin; arc, an active Eastern Mediterranean convergent margin

Dr. Ali Aksu

Dr. Charles Hurich
