What is the GDL

The Group of Dynamics of the Lithosphere is a group of researchers nucleated in 1998 at the Institut de Ciències de la Terra Jaume Almera (ICTJA-CSIC) but today incorporating people from different institutes and countries united by their interest on lithospheric-scale processes and their interaction with processes occurring on the Earth's surface. Our objectives are:
  1. to determine the structure and properties of the crust and lithosphere

  2. to study the long-term lithospheric evolution coupling shallow- and deep-seated processes

  3. to develop 2D and 3D numerical geodynamic models
