Geology and Tectonics

Geologic & tectonic research at UCLA follows a tradition of excellence in the study of the growth and demise of mountain belts, basin analysis, remote sensing, and surficial processes. Our faculty and researchers combine field research with computer modeling, geochemical analysis, geochronology, petrology, and satellite image analysis to understand Earth evolution and the geologic record of plate interactions.
