Studies of Active Tectonism in the Himalayas

iTECC is a inter-European research group funded and sponsored by the Marie Curie Actions. We investigate the links between climate, erosion and tectonics in the Himalaya using a variety of tools that span the geoanalytical spectrum.

Explore our website to find out who we are and what we do. Check out the blog to learn and see what each individual fellow is up to at the moment as well as the group as a whole during workshops and field trips. And feel free to contact us if you have any questions and/or comments!

Deciphering silicate weathering in the Himalaya from 40K- 40Ca

Here, in his first iTECC publication, Jesse Davenport (PhD student at CRPG) produces 40K-40Ca data on Himalyan rivers, silicates, carbonates and dolomites to try to see if the 40K-40Ca method can be used as a promising tracer of carbonate and silicate weathering in the complicated Himalayan system.

iTECC at the 29th Himalayan-Karakorum and Tibet Workshop

In early September a group of iTECC fellows and professors traveled to Lucca, Italy to participate in the 29th HKT conference. The fellows and professors presented their current research and results as posters and oral presentations in front of other HImalayan experts and graduate students. The iTECC fellows also completed a successful campaign to be recognized and have the honor of hosting the 31st HKT conference in southeastern France!
