Carlson, Richard individual record
Professor
overview

My research focuses on geodynamics, plate motions, thermal evolution of the oceanic lithosphere and the driving mechanism of plate tectonics.

I am also interested in the physical properties of rocks and minerals, elastic and anelastic properties of rocks and minerals under in-situ conditions with application to the composition, structure and state of the oceanic crust.
