About Robyn Ormond

Project title: 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.   Supervisor: Prof. Jérémie Lehmann (UJ), Prof. Marlina Elburg (UJ), Dr Pavlína Hasalová (Czech Geological Survey)   Research interests: Structural geology (field-based), geochronology, thermodynamic modelling, tectonics, orogenesis, remote sensing   Publications and previous work:
