RISE – the Role and Influence of Salt in the Evolution of fold and thrust belts is the name of the project led by Dr. Dan Mircea Tămaș and financed by the Executive Unit for the Financing of Higher Education, Research, Development, and Innovation (UEFISCDI). The scope of this project is quantifying the deformation ofContinue reading “Research Project – RISE”

Digital Outcrop Models
During this #stayathome times, we are trying to make as many resources as possible available for the students and any geoscientist alike. As such we are in the process of uploading 3D outcrops and also creating useful geoscientific collections on Sketchfab. Feel free to look and interact with our models at https://sketchfab.com/danmircea.tamas
Creating and interpreting digital outcrop models
Last week we had a visit from our friends from OMV Exploration. It was a great opportunity to discuss digital outcrop modelling workflows and how we extract structural data from these DOM’s in our research group.
Importance of analogue modelling
Last week we had a nice visit from our Geology students from the Hungarian line of study. We discussed about the surface and sub-surface data interpretation, about structural restoration and forward modelling and mainly on the importance and use of Analogue Modelling in the understanding of deformation style. It was great fun to have themContinue reading “Importance of analogue modelling”
Virtual Outcrop Interpretation
Came back from the TSG Conference in Hull with new ideas and clear determination for the new year and happy to continue working on the interpretation of 3D outcrop models (using VRGS). PS. there’s always room for a bit of fun.
TSG 2020 Conference Hull, UK
Had an amazing start of 2020 by attending the TSG conference in Hull, UK. I presented the challenges we face in the subsurface interpretation of a fold and thrust belts and how to get the best insights: an example from Eastern Carpathian Bend Zone, Romania.
On the footsteps of Ludovic Mrazec
In 2014 we set out on the footsteps of the famous geologist Ludovic Mrazec to try and understand the evolution of salt deformation in orogenic settings. His work was ground-breaking and far ahead of his time. If interested on the heritage of salt tectonics check out our paper: Understanding salt in orogenic settings: The evolutionContinue reading “On the footsteps of Ludovic Mrazec”
