About the Author

Cathy Busby got her BS from Berkeley and her PhD fromPrinceton University, both in Geological Sciences. She mainly workson upper crustal rocks, combining stratigraphy, structural geology,geochronology, geochemistry and paleomagnetics to solve tectonicproblems. Her papers also include process-oriented studies insubmarine and subaaerial volcanism, clastic depositional systems,and economic geology. Her research support has come from geothermaland gold exploration industries, as well as the petroleum industry,the U.S. Geological Survey, and the National Science Foundation.

Antonio Azor: Full Professor in Structural Geology andTectonic Geomorphology at the Department of Geodynamics of theUniversity of Granada (Spain). Research fields of interest:Structural Geology and Tectonics, Active Tectonics, TectonicGeomorphology, Regional Geology of the Late Palaeozoic VariscanOrogen and the Alpine Betic Cordillera.
