Biographical details

Patrice Rey was born in France on the same Bob Dylan delivered "Blowin' in the Wind" to the world. Beside these two events, April 16th 1962 was a pretty uneventful day.

Research interests

Patrice is a tectonicist interested in (1) the evolution of the continental lithosphere through tectonic processes, and (2) the evolution of tectonic processes through time. His research activities are therefore problem-driven and process-oriented. They are supported by research strategies involving quantitative multidisciplinary approaches, based on field work, numerical modelling and physical modelling. In the past Patrice has been working on the seismic structure of the continental crust and its relation to mountain building processes. He has produced work on the seismic reflectivity of ductile shear zones in the crust. In Europe he has worked on the evolution of the Variscan belt and its tectonic relationships with the Caledonides. In the last ten years he has been investigating the tectonics processes that have shaped the surface of the early Earth in the Archaean era (4.03 to 2.5 Ga).

More recently, Patrice has reveal the secrets of the formation of precious opal in central Australia, and he suggested that the geological evolution of central Australia was a unique Terrestrial analogue for the evolution of Mars during the drying out of its surface 3 billion years ago.
