About us

The research of our Structural Geology & Earth Resources Group bridges the disciplines of structural geology and seismology to investigate the nature of deformation in the Earth's crust. This involves the use of subsurface imaging, satellite remote sensing, and geologic methods to model the spatial and temporal interactions of fault systems in, and around, sedimentary basins. Our research has direct applications in earthquake hazards assessment, oil & gas exploration, and environmental conservation related to natural resource utilization. These activities demand extensive geologic and geophysical databases, as well as high-performance computing and visualization capabilities.
