My Master research is on the tectonic and kinematic development of the Haute Chaine Jura to the the NW of the Geneva Basin. The objective is to use a forward modelling approach based on 2D viable sections to create a kinematically sound NW-SE oriented 2D section. Special attention will be given to location and geometry of top basement and multiple detachment levels. Fieldwork will allow me to densify surface data to better constrain my modelling. Available seismic data will allow me to implement subsurface information into the model. The work is a collaborative effort with SIG Geneva to develop a profile ranging from the Geneva Basin into the Jura Mountains.
