Physics

Global Geodynamics and Seismology

Our group studies the structure and dynamics of the Earth, planets and stars using observational, computational and theoretical methods. Areas of research include:
  • Core-mantle coupling (Dumberry)
  • Lithosphere structure and mantle dynamics (CurrieGuHeimpel)
  • Seismic velocity, reflectivity and anisotropy of the Earth’s mantle (Gu)
  • Zonal winds of gas and ice giants (HeimpelDumberry)
  • Subduction zone dynamics and evolution (Currie)
  • CRANE broadband seismic network (Gu)
  • Magnetohydrodynamics of planetary fluid cores (HeimpelDumberry)
  • Crustal stress and microseismicity (GuCurrie
  • Libration dynamics of Mercury (Dumberry)
  • Earthquake physics (Heimpel)
