Project Description

This project investigate structures developed at the edges of cratons relate to the craton margin geometry. By imaging the geometry of craton margin and the structures, the project will assess the margin geometry influences on the distribution of structures in the upper crust. Understanding the relationship between different cratonic margin geometries and structures can be implemented as a tool to predict the behaviour of lithosphere at different craton margins and controls on the development of base metal mineral systems.
