Home page of Susanne Buiter

I use a model-based approach in a range of projects spanning from sedimentary structures at Earth's surface to subducted slabs in the upper mantle, with the common goal to understand the underlying physical processes. My current research projects include numerical modelling of the formation and evolution of passive margins, microcontinent formation, subduction and continental collision, code development, and analogue-numerical model comparisons.

I am a senior researcher at, and team leader of, the Bedrock and Geodynamics Team at the Geological Survey of Norway. I am also member of the Dynamic Earth Research Team of the Centre of Excellence CEED, University of Oslo, Norway. And for 2013-2017 i am the president of the Tectonics and Structural Geology Division of EGU.

I am (co-)convening these events at EGU2017 (23 - 28 April) and hope you will join if you are at EGU!
