About Robyn Ormond
Pressure-temperature-time-deformation (P-T-t-d) constraints on the mechanisms of dome formation in the southern Central Zone of the Damara Belt, Namibia. A bit more: Combining field-based structural geology with thermodynamic modelling and geochronology to unravel the tectonometamorphic evolution of the Namibfontein-Vergenoeg Dome, with broader implications for that of the Central Zone of the Pan African Damara Orogen.
Prof. Jérémie Lehmann (UJ), Prof. Marlina Elburg (UJ), Dr Pavlína Hasalová (Czech Geological Survey)
Structural geology (field-based), geochronology, thermodynamic modelling, tectonics, orogenesis, remote sensing
