Dr Nicholas Harmon is Associate Professor in Geophysics within Ocean and Earth Science, National Oceanography Centre Southampton at the University of Southampton.

I am a marine geophysicist and seismologist interested in plate tectonics and mantle dynamics. Plate tectonics is a fundamental theory for earth science, but the mechanics of this process are not fully understood. The focus of my research is to understand the interactions between the rigid lithosphere and flow in the mantle beneath and how these interactions result in surface volcanism and plate boundary formation. I use observations such as gravity and seafloor surveys, and in particular ocean bottom seismology. I also use numerical modelling techniques to determine the implications of various geophysical and geochemical constraints.
