On Thursday, March 14th at 8:00 pm in the Science Center, Room 214, Chris Connors will give the William E. Pritchard Professorship Inaugural Lecture.
The title of his talk is "The Importance of Fault-related Folding in Deformation of the Earth's Crust."
In his lecture he will show examples from around the world to demonstrate how fundamental the relationship is between faulting and folding in the upper crust. He will show that consideration of these processes allows for a better understanding of the subsurface geometry and kinematics of map-scale structures. He will also show results from a program that he has written to model these structures.
