Dr. Thomas Rockwell is a nationally and internationally renowned paleoseismologist and structural geologist who has published over 120 articles in major international journals, coauthored a number of book chapters, published 40 papers in conference proceedings and guidebooks, and coauthored over 300 papers presented at professional meetings.  Having served as Geology Group Leader for the Southern California Earthquake Center for many years, he is an expert on the tectonics and earthquake hazards of southern California and Baja California, has conducted extensive trenching programs to date earthquakes on faults in the western U.S., South and Central America, the Middle East and Asia, and routinely uses soil stratigraphy and geomorphology combined with various radiometric dating techniques to assess rates of fault activity, determine recency of faulting, and date past earthquakes.  In the past decade, he has initiated a number of ground-breaking studies on fault zone architecture and processes in southern California with PhD students Ory Dor and Neta Wechsler, as well as with many MS-level students. New work on fault zone damage, pulverization, and fluid processes has resulted in over a dozen well-cited papers on this topic since 2006. His other research focuses on understanding earthquake occurrence in time and space.  Current projects include the characterization of fault systems behavior by understanding patterns of past recurrence of large earthquakes on faults in southern California, northern Mexico, Panama, Argentina, Portugal, Spain, Turkey, India, and Israel.  This work includes resolving information on slip per event, as it relates to understanding the controls on segmentation and rupture termination. Current work on fault zone processes initially focused on damage characteristics, but has shifted to the role of fluids nd the processes that produce the damage.  He has also worked extensively on the affects of tectonism on the landscape, and using geomorphology to constrain rates and timing of tectonic events.  Included in this latter aspect is detailed mapping and dating of marine terraces along the west coast of North America and assessment of paleosea level during the late Quaternary.
