Come on in and have a look!
Welcome at the website of the Tectonic Laboratory (TecLab) of the VU Amsterdam. This Laboratory is a project of ISES (Integrated Solid Earth Science, www.ises.nu). If you are interested in tectonics and analogue modelling and want to participate, please contact us. In this laboratory the earth is reconstructed at a manageable size. Students and researchers use materials like sand, silicon putty, scanners and photo cameras to understand the tectonic evolution of the earth. In the TecLab crustal scale and lithospheric scale experiments are possible. Different kinds of hardware and software as well as numerical modeling are used to complete the study you are interested in.
