Ongoing research

Research in the General Geology group, led by Tenure-Track Professor Nevena Andrić Tomašević, focuses on how tectonics, magmatism, climate and surface processes interact to influence sedimentary basins and their associate mountain ranges. In particular we are interested in:

  • The influence of geodynamic processes on location, timing and rates of sediment accumulation.
  • Source to sink relations in sedimentary basins associated with hydrothermal systems.
  • Disentangling and quantifying tectonic and climatic controls on erosion, transport and deposition.

To investigate these topics, we use a range of tools and techniques including field observations, analytical measurements, basin analysis and numerical models.

Our research has broad implications on the sustainable use of sedimentary basins for underground resources like drinking water, raw materials and pore-space to produce and store energy.
