Seismotectonics Research

Large earthquakes in stable intraplate regions are rare; they account for only about 5% of the global seismic moment release. However, large intraplate earthquakes do…

Centrifuge modelling

We have begun to investigate mid-crustal ductile flow (infrastructure), and its effect on upper crustal (superstructure) deformation style, through centrifuge modelling. Analogue centrifuge models are…

Water-limited mineral weathering

Earth’s shallow subsurface, or “critical zone,” is of fundamental importance for supporting terrestrial life and maintaining water quality. An important part of the critical zone…
