Tectonics

Professor Paul Tapponnier’s team is interested in continental dynamics and tectonics, particularly in Asia (from Myanmar to Mongolia) but also in the Middle-East (in Lebanon and around the Red Sea). Paul Tapponnier and his team investigate active faulting and seismotectonics and assess earthquake hazard by using quantitative geomorphology, rock mechanics and rock deformation physics.
