Location: Stanford University
Anyone wishing to attend the lecture only is welcome at no cost.
This will be the 333rd meeting since 1954.
Atilla Aydin is a Professor in the Structural Geology and Geomechanics teaching and research program for graduate students in the Department of Geological and Environmental Sciences at Stanford University.. He received his BA from Technical University of Istanbul and his MS and PhD from Stanford.
He is interested in the formation, geometric patterns and fluid flow properties of fractures in a broad range of scales. He and his students are involved in projects which require both modeling and a strong field component. The field component is similar to a detective's work, which aims to establish temporal and spatial relationships among various parts of a structure. The modeling component is like the moral of a story, which enables one to see through the rationale and use it for guidance in the future.
