This is a short course taught by Prof. Dr. Jean Braun (GFZ-Uni Potsdam). This course is organized in the scope of the StRATEGy program.

During this short course, we will first cover a few theoretical aspects of heat transport in the crust that are relevant to the interpretation of thermochronological data. These will include the effect of heat advection by rock exhumation, of a finite amplitude, time-varying topography, and motion along faults. We will then use Pecube to illustrate these concepts through a series of examples based on real thermochronological observations. Course notes, reading material, and the software Pecube will be provided to the students. In the following link, you can find a reading database about Pecube:

The course is aimed at people interested in thermochronology and thermo-kinematic modelling. The maximum number of participants is limited to 20 students. It will take place in the room:
Registration is free of charge. Deadline for registration: November 7th
