UC Berkeley Active Tectonics

Welcome to the Active Tectonics Research Group at UC Berkeley. We are part of the Department of Earth and Planetary Science and are affiliated with the Berkeley Seismological Laboratory. Our research focuses on problems relating to fault zone processes and crustal deformation. Our approach is interdisciplinary, integrating geodetic, geomorphic, geologic, and seismological observations along with theoretical modeling.

Those interested in pursuing a Ph.D. degree in our group are encouraged to contact Roland.
