Dr. Andy Nyblade, Penn State presents his lecture. Dr. Nyblade's research is focused on understanding the structure and dynamic evolution of continental lithosphere using a multidisciplinary approach. In this approach, several types of geophysical data (i.e., seismic, gravity, heat flow) are gathered in the field and then used to critically evaluate models for continental structure.
