With interests in geophysics and tectonics, Rob van der Voo's research centers on paleomagnetism and its application to mountain-building processes and pre-Mesozoic plate tectonics. In addition, he and his students are involved in studies of the more theoretical aspects of the Earth's magnetic field and its history, and the processes by which sedimentary and igneous rocks acquire their magnetizations.
Field(s) of Study
