Frederick W. Taylor

SENIOR RESEARCH SCIENTIST
Frederick Taylor headshotFrederick investigates vertical crustal motions in the forearcs of southwestern Pacific convergent margins. He is using uplifted corals and microatolls, GPS measurements, and seismology to investigate the relationships between plate motion, interplate slip, and both shorter- and longer-term temporary and “permanent” accumulation of vertical deformation. He also continues to participate in coral-based paleoclimate studies.
