Dr. Fergus McNab
Funktion und Aufgaben:I am a postdoctoral researcher working with Taylor Schildgen as part of the GyroSCoPeproject.
I am primarily interested in the ways in which tectonic, geodynamic and climatic processes are expressed and recorded in Earth's surface landscape and geology.
Specific projects include:
- Origins and evolution of cratonic basins (particularly Congo, Parnaíba, Taoudeni).
- Formation and significance of ancient transient landscapes (McNab and White, 2021).
- Neogene-Quaternary uplift, magmatism and geodynamic evolution of Anatolia (McNab et al., 2018; 2019).
- Active tectonics in Afghanistan and the Tajik Depression (McNab et al., 2019).
