Geophysics

Research covers a range of topics in plate tectonics dealing with the thermal and mechanical evolution of the lithosphere, with emphasis on using measurements of heat flow at the sea floor, and the study of the other bodies in our Solar System. Other research areas include geophysical dating techniques, like optically stimulating luminescence dating and refinement of geophysical models of sedimentary architecture, the glacio-isostatic process, and ice sheet mechanics.
