Geodynamics and Tectonics

Paleomagnetic reconstruction of geodynamic and tectonic processes

The method of palaeomagnetism provides quantitative data on the movement history of tectonic units in comparison to continents. Together with structural geological observations, this is an effective method for the reconstruction of complex geological processes.

Areas of activity

  • Austria (Bohemian Massif, Northern Calcareous Alps, Graz Palaeozoic, Southern Alps, Miocene Basins)
  • Ethiopia (Rift Valley)
  • Albania (Albanides, ophiolite zone)
  • Bulgaria (Moesian Platform)
  • Greece (Rhodope Mountains)
  • Italy (Periadriatic Lineament)
  • Spain (Pyrenees, Azuara Structure)
  • Tanzania (Rift Valley)
