Geodynamics and Basin Studies

The Geodynamics and Basin Studies research group studies geological processes and Earth dynamics, and the geometry and evolution of sedimentary basins. Through a combination of geological and geophysical approaches, we map Earth's crust and reconstruct prehistoric landscapes to increase our understanding of geological processes. The academic staff in our group have expertise in sedimentology, marine geology, structural geology, tectonics, geodynamic modelling, geochronology and geophysics.
