Janos’ topics of interest and websites

Micro- and mesoscale processes of rock deformation in the presence of fluids, investigated by field, laboratory and numerical methods. Salt tectonics, evolution of salt structures; deformation mechanisms and fluid flow in evaporite rocks; structure of mobile grain boundaries in the presence of a fluid phase; nanoscale morphology of the pore space in fine grained rocks; sealing of fractures and crystal growth in fractured rock.
