Summary

 

Summary

My PhD focuses on the evolution of fault arrays in rift basins. With advances in computational power we are now able to produce high resolution 3D numerical models to see how faults initiate, propagate and interact. However, whether numerical models are geologically realistic has not been established. I will quantitatively compare the output of numerical models with the observed fault patterns in seismic data - this provides valuable insight in to the early stages of continental rifting.
