Division on Tectonics and Structural Geology (TS)

President: Claudio Rosenberg, ts@egu.eu
Deputy President: Magdalena Scheck-Wenderoth, magdalena.scheck@gfz-potsdam.de

The Division on Tectonics and Structural Geology (TS) investigates rock deformation at all scales with the aim to decipher its complex relationships with earth dynamics. We use natural observations, including mapping, remote sensing and seismics, and experimental methods. The division is highly interdisciplinary, with strong ties with other EGU divisions including GD, EMRP, SM, SSP, GM, G, and GMPV.

Cees Passchier won the Stephan Mueller Medal 2017!

At the 2017 General Assembly Cees W. Passchier was awarded with the 2017 Stephan Mueller Medal in recognition of his fundamental contributions to the understanding of deformation in rocks at all scales through innovative tools such as kinematic indicators, microstructural criteria, and vorticity analysis. Congratulations!

A successful 2017 General Assembly for the TS Division

With a little delay we note that the 2017 General Assembly again broke records with 14,500 participants and 17,400 presentations. Also for TS this was a very successful meeting with an all-time record of 960 abstracts in 32 sessions that were led by TS (and over 1500 abstracts if we include co-organised sessions). We would like to thank you all for helping make this meeting such a success and we hope you enjoyed it as much as the TS team did!

Please fill out the questionnaire at www.egu2017.eu/feedback and/or drop us a mail at ts@egu.eu for any division-related feedback - positive or negative, we need your input to keep improving our programme!

While the aftermath of EGU 2017 is still in our minds, the new TS team led by TS Division president Claudio Rosenberg will now slowly start to get to work for EGU 2018.

This month, the EGU announced the first AOGS–EGU joint conference, on New Dimensions for Natural Hazards in Asia. The meeting is taking place from 4 to 8 February 2018 in the Philippines and the deadline for abstract submission is 31 August. Another important deadline to keep in mind is 15 June: you have until then to nominate deserving scientists for all EGU 2018 medals and awards. We encourage the EGU membership to consider gender, geographical and cultural balance when nominating outstanding Earth, planetary and space scientists at various career stages. Finally, we invite you to look back to the EGU 2017 General Assembly by watching the highlights of the conference on video or some of the web streamed sessions, such as medal lectures and great debates. If you haven’t yet, please help us make the 2018 meeting even better by submitting your feedback by the end of today (31 May).
