Welcome to the Continental Tectonics Group!
Our research group, established in 2014, has been working on a wide range of topics related to the geologic evolution of continental crust. We examine magmatic systems from migmatites through batholiths to volcanic processes on the Earth’s surface, with a particular focus on tectonic setting and emplacement of granite plutons, while other research has been directed towards the dynamics of Precambrian accretionary wedges, formation of subduction mélanges, and Late Archean transition of vertical to horizontal plate tectonics. We have pursued various tectonic studies in ancient collisional orogens and active margins in Europe, North American Cordillera, Canada, and Antarctica. We enjoy a broad research network established with numerous colleagues from the Czech Republic, Austria, Germany, Bulgaria, and the United States, and integrate multiple methods including detailed field mapping, rock magnetism, U–Pb zircon geochronology, petrology, geochemistry, geophysics, and numerical modeling. Our group also runs the Laboratory of Rock Magnetism and Laboratory of Experimental Tectonics.
