About Prof Jérémie Lehmann

Research interests:

Tectonics, structural geology, orogenic belts, mining exploration  


Second year:  Structural Geology: stress, strain, rheology, brittle and ductile deformation at tectonic plate scale to mesoscale. Includes four days field excursion in Johannesburg dome basement gneisses and greenstones and deformed Witwatersrand Supergroup cover.

Honours:  Tectonic Evolution of Mountain Building Areas: structural geology and rheology of the lithosphere. Microstructures. Excursion: Advanced Field Mapping (3 weeks)
