The rock deformation labs at Brown University and MIT have formed a Collaborative Organization for Rock Deformation (CORD). The primary goal is to encourage and facilitate participation in experimental rock deformation studies by a broader spectrum of scientists within the Earth science community.

We also hold regular meetings, lectures and workshops that can be attended by all those interested either in person or by web-link. Below are links to an archive of past meetings:

1st CORD meeting on rate-and-state friction (Terry Tullis, April 2nd 2018)

2nd CORD meeting on the brittle-ductile transition (Brian Evans, Matej Pec, Greg Hirth, June 11th 2018)
