Activities (2)

Thermal Exhumation Model part of Cutting Edge:Complex Systems:Teaching Activities
Build a one-dimensional thermal model in STELLA of rock uplift. Determine how the speed of uplift affects the geotherm and why uplift rates determined from heat flow are often too high. The model demonstrates the Laplacian method of following materials in a model that significantly reduces the complications in creating the model.

Advanced steronet -finding rotation axes part of Cutting Edge:Structural Geology:Structure, Geophysics, and Tectonics 2012:Activities
Using stereonets to find rotation axes of tilted planes. Paleomagnetic vectors used as indicators of rotations of dikes and planes.
