- Author BiographyOlivier Merle is a specialist in the relationship between deformation and displacement in nappes and thrusts. He has worked at the University of Arizona (USA) on thrusts in the Colorado Plateau and has carried out experimental research at the University of Texas at Austin. Olivier Merle was awarded the French CNRS Bronze Medal in 1992.
