Laboratory of Experimental Tectonics

Laboratory of Experimental Tectonics (head Jaroslava Hajná) is equipped with highly sophisticated apparatus purpose-made by the Development Center of the Institute of Organic Chemistry and Biochemistry, Czech Academy of Sciences, able to simulate a wide range of geologic processes, mostly related to active continental margins and subduction of oceanic plates. Current experiments investigate the mechanisms of formation of subduction mélanges and expansion of accretionary wedges.
