Geodynamics Research Group

A research group of the Department of Earth Sciences.

Group Statement

The Geodynamics Group is a rapidly growing research group, investigating the dynamics of the Earth sub-surface through various forward modelling techniques. The Earth Science department in Durham has specific expertise in both numerical and analog modelling of global geodynamics(mantle convection and plate tectonics), earthquake dynamics, physical volcanology, avalanches and landslides, and porous media flow dynamics.

The group actively interacts and collaborates with members within the group, but also has clear active research links with many of the other research groups (geophysics, structural geology, volcanology, geochemistry and environmental geoscience). The group meets weekly in the geodynamics and geochemistry lunch meeting.
