Welcome to the webpage of the University of Miami’s Geodynamics Group! We are located within the Department of Marine Geoscience within the Rosenstiel School of Marine, Atmospheric, and Earth Science and led by Adam F. Holt.
We strive to constrain the factors that govern the geologic evolution of plates, plate boundaries and the underlying mantle, and the rates and scales over which this deformation occurs. To achieve this, we integrate a variety of geodynamic modeling techniques with geological and geophysical observations. See the Research page for more details about some current and recent projects.
We are excited to welcome Ryan Stoner as a Postdoc! He joins us from UCSB to begin working on metamorphic phase transitions within dynamic subduction models.2. Septemember 2022
