About Us

Newly formed (nov 2017) geoscience research group focusing on structural interpretation using methods like seismic interpretation, well log correlation, forward modelling, structural restauration, analogue modelling, fieldwork, mapping, remote sensing (UAV based) coupled with creation and interpretation of virtual outcrops.

The research group (led by Dr. Dan M. Tamas) is based in the Research Center for Integrated Geological Studies, Babes-Bolyai University, Cluj-Napoca, Romania and performs most of the work from the Structural and Analogue Modelling Laboratory.
