Research Project – RISE

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”

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”

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”
