Chuck DeMets

Position title: Alfred Wegener Professor of Geophysics, Emeritus


Present-day and past crustal deformation at scales ranging from global-scale to individual faults. I rely on a variety of marine geophysical, satellite-based, airborne, seismologic, and geodetic data for my work. My present program has field and modeling components, with significant emphasis on the seismic cycles and faulting mechanisms of subduction zones.
