Geophysical research utilizes analytical and numerical tools to quantify tectonic processes. Basic geophysical research lays the ground for understanding of Earth processes, which affect natural hazards and resource estimation.
Mid-plate volcanoes load tectonic plates and cause the plates to flex. Plate flexure, in turn, can modify the volcanic eruptions. In transform plate boundaries, the majority of relative plate motion takes place by lateral displacement between two tectonic plates. Read ten Brink and others research papers.
At rift zones the continental crust and lithosphere are subjected to extensional stresses, which result in the formation of sedimentary basins. These basins sometime accumulate natural resources of oil, gas and water. Read ten Brink and others research papers.
In subduction plate boundaries, one tectonic plate sinks under another tectonic plate. The process of sinking is often accompanied by large earthquakes, volcanism, and the building of mountains. Read ten Brink and others research papers.
