Processes associated with fault reactivation; pseudotachylytes and the geologic record of earthquake rupture
About the Prof.
Current Research Projects:
1. Earthquake dynamics and frictional-plastic coupling at hypocentral depths. A study of coeval pseudotachylyte and mylonite in the Homestake shear zone, Sawatch Range, Colorado. Funded by the National Science Foundation Tectonics Program.
2. Dynamic development and reactivation of a newly discovered frictional-plastic deformation system: Origin and evolution of the Grizzly Creek shear zone, Glenwood Canyon, Colorado. Funded by the Petroleum Research Fund of the American Chemical Society.
3. Geology of the New River Gorge National Scenic River. Geologic mapping in collaboration with the National Park Service and the West Virginia Geologic and Economic Survey.
