Structural Geology

Structural Geology is a branch of geology that deals with the form, arrangement, and internal structure of rocks is also called also geotectonic geology. Structural Geology, Tectonics and Geodynamics form a coherent and interdependent group of sub-disciplines which is the study of the physical forms and relations of rocks which result mainly from deformation by earth forces.

Researchers in structural geology have integrated field-based analyses, laboratory work on rock deformation, fluid-rock interactions, metamorphic reactions, continuum and fracture mechanics, geochemistry, geochronology, isotope geochemistry, and a range of other disciplines, across vast ranges of time and space to develop new ways to examine and understand our planet. Plate tectonics developed as a unifying theory of the solid Earth from observations of the ocean floors where deformation, seismicity, and volcanism are localized at boundaries between rigid plates.
