Research topics

Structure and long-wavelength deformation of cratonic lithospheres

Vertical motions, dynamic topography and long-term evolution of cratonic areas.

Key areas: Andes, Sierra Nevada, Pyrenees

Mantle-surface interactions: mantle dynamics expression in topography and deformation

Links between deep processes (mantle flow, slab dynamics) and surface responses; subduction/collision, delamination, dynamic topography.

Key areas: Andes, Sierra Nevada, Pyrenees

High plateaus dynamics

Crustal flow of mature collision zones and high plateaus, extrusion and gravity spreading, syntaxes' formation.

Key areas: Himalaya-Tibet, Andes
