Geology is a forensic science. We must look at deformation from an historical viewpoint. We have to consider a wide range of spatial scales.

We work on a variety of time-scales, from those required for an earthquake to those that form mountain belts. 3D visualization is critical The Earth as a cooling body Formed by accretion 4.55 Ga Cooling by conduction, radiation, advection Advective cooling drives plate tectonics

The distribution of rocks, of temperature, and of deformation on the planet all determined by plate tectonics.
