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.

Current issue of the EGU newsletter

At the start of this month, the US president announced the country would be withdrawing from the Paris climate agreement, a decision that rejects the overwhelming political and scientific consensus. The EGU reacted by strongly opposing this decision and reaffirming its support for the EGU scientific community and its science. EGU President Jonathan Bamber also wrote in defence of science in an opinion piece, a follow-up to the ‘Make Facts Great Again: how can scientists stand up for science?’ Union Symposium at the EGU 2017 General Assembly. An editorial about the session was also published in Nature Geoscience, highlighting the need not only for the public to trust in scientists, but also for scientists to trust the people.

In other news, the EGU has opened a call for financial support for training schools. If you’d like to organise a training school in the Earth, planetary or space sciences in 2018, please apply for funding from the EGU by 15 August 2017.
