Gabriel González López
He devotes his studies to understand active tectonics processes in subduction zones.
He has combined his tectonic studies with the understanding of morphological processes in extreme aridity environments. His most recent work is as principal investigator of the FONDAP CIGIDEN Center, center that leads the integrated studies of disasters in Chile. His specific areas of interest are: paleo-seismology of crustal faults, integrated understanding of subduction earthquakes, structural geology and geotectonics.
