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.
