Research in tectonics and sedimentation is ongoing in many areas, including central and southern Asia (Tibet and Nepal), the central Andes (Bolivia), western North America, eastern Africa, and the central Mediterranean. Research focuses on various types of sedimentary basins and their tectonic mechanisms of formation.
