Dr. Maria Laura Gómez Dacal

GFZ Potsdam

Maria Laura Gomez Dacal is researcher in the Basin Modeling section (4.5) at GFZ Potsdam. Her research interests are gravity and isostasy modelling, as well as, the investigation of the thermal and stress field to assess the present-day configuration of the lithosphere. More specifically, she integrates geophysical and geological information into 3D lithospheric-scale models of the subsurface to, in a further step, run 3D numerical simulations and obtain the distribution of physical properties, such as, density, temperature, strength.
