Jason Phipps Morgan (full research profile)
Professor in Geophysics
Relevant Expertise/Experience: Geodynamical Modeling & Marine Geophysics
Prof. Phipps Morgan has previously worked on the geodynamic modeling and marine geophysical observation of deformation and melting at rifts (Reston and Phipps Morgan, 20043, Pérez-Gussinyé, Phipps Morgan, Reston and Ranero, 2006), ridges (Phipps Morgan and Chen, 1993; Thiessen-Krah et al., 2011), hotspots (Yamamoto et al., 2007; Phipps Morgan et al., 2012), and subduction zones (Hasenclever et al., 2011). He has had 15 years of deep sea marine geophysics experience working as a Professor at the Scripps Institution of Oceanography and Director of the Geodynamics Department of the GEOMAR Research Institute in Kiel. His current research focuses on the development of 3-D parallel finite element codes for deformation for numerical experiments exploring the dynamics of the mantle-asthenosphere-lithosphere system and coupled deformation, fluid flow, and serpentinization.
Role/Function in CMRG: Geodynamic modeling, coupled geodynamic-tectonic-stratigraphic forward modeling.
