Dr. Kevin Mickus is distinguished professor of geology. His research involves the interpretation of gravity, magnetic and electromagnetic data for crustal and upper mantle structure plus for resources (mining, geothermal), environmental and archaeological applications.
His studies have included the Ouachita orogenic belt in Arkansas, Oklahoma and Texas; Precambrian boundaries in the Pacific NW; the Mojave extensional terrane in southern California and western Arizona; the east African Rift system in Ethiopia, Kenya and Botswana; the Atlas Mountains in Algeria and Tunisia; and volcanic fields in California, Antarctica and Arizona.
Environmental and archaeological applications include using gravity, DC-resistivity, electromagnetic and GPR data.
