BoDy – Boudinage Dynamics: (Naxos)

PIs: Christoph v.Hagke, Janos Urai

In this project we study outcrop analogues to salt tectonics using macroscopic and microstructural analyses. Field area is Naxos, where boudinage structures are exposed in 3-D, as well as the exceptionally well-exposed boudins and mullions in the Oman Mountains.
