Madagascar, a microcontinent off the southeast coast of Africa, was once sandwiched between Africa, India, and Antarctica in the supercontinent Gondwana. Southern Madagascar exposes rocks that were buried 30 km deep beneath a Himalaya-type mountain range; I traveled there to learn about the crust beneath large mountain ranges. See my research page for more details.
