Meta-information system facilitates use of complex data related to Andes



Studies of the Collaborative Research Center 267, “Deformation Processes in the Andes,” focus on interdisciplinary geoscientific research in the central and Patagonian Andes involving all disciplines of geoscience. The combination of geophysical and geological field research, Global Positioning System monitoring, penological and geochemical analysis, age dating, and remote sensing provides new insight into the structure and tectonic evolution of the Andes.
