Members of the Helsinki University Geodynamics Group (HUGG) study processes involved in deformation of the Earth’s lithosphere. Our research focuses on quantifying the kinematics and dynamics of the tectonic, geomorphic and geodynamic processes that shape Earth’s outer rigid layer primarily using numerical modelling. Our cutting-edge predictive and interpretative numerical tools are connected with observations from the field, and geochronological, geophysical or remote sensing data. We are also actively involved in teaching in the Bachelor’s programme in Geosciences, the Master's programme in Geology and Geophysics, and the new Bachelor’s of Science in English programme that will launch in 2019.
