Course content

The group has a track record of significant contributions to understanding the geodynamics of plate boundary zones including South America (Chile, Argentina), the Eastern Mediterranean region (Greece, Cyprus, Turkey, Syria), the Caledonides (Norway) and Variscides (SW England). Our approach integrates palaeomagnetic studies with kinematic analysis of deformation and geochronology in order to elucidate the nature and timing of crustal rotation in relation to plate interactions. Research addresses the geology and evolution of both continental and oceanic lithosphere, the latter via investigations of ophiolite terranes and core recovered by ocean drilling (Integrated Ocean Drilling Program).
