AK47 bullet impact

3D model of an AK47 bullet impact in sandstone

This web site is for disseminating teaching and research materials in Structural and Economic Geology. I’m interested in:

  • Ballistic impacts and built heritage (see above)
  • Global Georesources: their distribution, finite quantity, extraction and depletion.
  • Deformation processes in the Earth at all scales, especially in the upper crust, and their relation to the formation of hydrothermal mineral deposits.
  • Fracturing, fluid flow, and brecciation.
  • The application of kinematic and dynamic fault slip analyses to mineral deposits and tectonic problems.
  • Relations between tectonics and surface processes.
  • Applications of Fractals in the Earth Sciences.
