Monsieur Oğuz Göğüş, professeur associé à la Istanbul Technical University, Eurasia Institute of Earth Sciences (voir bio ci-dessous), présentera une conférence le 8 mars 2019 à 10h00, à la salle 2422 du Centre Eau Terre Environnement de l'INRS.
Sa conférence s'intitule Lithospheric removal, vertical tectonics and structural evolution of orogens reconciling models and observations (voir résumé ci-dessous).
Bienvenue à tous !
Résumé : The lithospheric removal (delamination, convective instabilities) is the subject of considerable geological, geophysical and geochemical studies and is used to explain the development of basins, plateaus, exhumation and the recycling of continental crust. In this presentation, I shall attempt to review the observations and then show the first order synthesis of numerical and analogue model predictions to address how vertical tectonics (crust-mantle interaction) can modify planets without plate tectonics operating surface tectonics at major high plateaus around the globe. Further, with the broad multidisciplinary scope using geology and geophysics on a large-scale tectonic problems the research would be of interest to a broad audience.
Biographie : Oguz’s research activities encompass the investigation of surface and crustal response to various tectonic processes with insights from field (structural) studies and quantitative (numerical and physical) modeling. The research reconciles model predictions against wide range of geological, geophysical and petrological observations in order to develop clearer understanding of structural evolution of orogenic plateaus, sedimentary basin formations in rift systems and fold-thrust belts and their relation to magmatism and metamorphism. The research also has many practical applications such as identifying the geothermal (heat flow) potential of the crust and the ore deposits formations. The broad goal of the research is to provide new insight into the theoretical and applied aspect of structural/tectonic problems in the context of Precambrian and the Phanerozoic geology on earth and other planets. Oguz completed his BSc in Geological Engineering (with honors) at Dokuz Eylul University, Turkey (2001). He graduated with MSc in Geology at Oklahoma State University, USA in 2004 and completed PhD in Geology at the University of Toronto in 2010. He was postdoctoral researcher at University of Leeds, UK (2011-2013) and was a visiting fellow at Universita Roma Tre, Italy (2009 and 2012) and ETH Zurich (2016), 6 months each. He has been an Associate Professor at Istanbul Technical University, Eurasia Institute of Earth Sciences, since 2015.
