Welcome to the CSDMS Geodynamics Focus Research Group (FRG) page. The Geodynamics FRG is a research group (currently 387 members), that is additionally co-sponsored by GeoPRISMS, a legacy of the NSF MARGINS Program. It is a decadal program, funded by NSF, committed to the amphibious study of the origin and evolution of continental margins through interdisciplinary, community-based investigations. The group was initiated in March of 2013 and is led by co-chairs, Phaedra Upton and Mark Behn. The group's goals are to provide input to the CSDMS effort on how to best represent geodynamic processes and models within CSDMS.
