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.


Tectonic Evolution of Mountain Building Areas: structural geology and rheology of the lithosphere. Microstructures.

Excursion: Advanced Field Mapping (3 weeks)
