Tectonic evolution through analogue modelling

Tectonic evolution through analogue modelling

Internship Description

The Arabian plate geology group is building a state of the art analogue modelling laboratory, which will be functional by year-end 2020. The apparatus consists of two rigid plates which can be displaced in x,y and z directions. This setup brings unlimited variety for future geological models. The analogue modelling apparatus can be used with either CT-scanner or normal laboratory conditions, for which an additional acquisition apparatus is under construction. This equipment will be used primarily for modeling large-scale tectonic processes of the Red Sea and the Dead Sea Transform.
