In the UK Structure and Geodynamics Group, Prof. Ryan Thigpen and his students and collaborators use field, analytical, and computational methods to test hypotheses of fundamental tectonic and geomorphic processes


Our group is focused on analyzing governing links between structural evolution and larger scale geodynamics. We address a range of problems, from integrated geomechanical and basin analysis studies to holistic characterization of orogenic wedge evolution to active tectonics processes reflected in surface topographic evolution.
