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.

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.

Last week (23–28 April), the EGU had the pleasure to host 14,500 participants at the EGU 2017 General Assembly in Vienna. This was a record-breaking meeting, with close to 17,500 oral, poster and PICO presentations, and over 1000 sessions and side events. For making the meeting a success, the EGU would like to thank all participants, as well as everyone involved in the organisation of the meeting: conveners, members of the EGU Programme Committee, Copernicus Meetings, conference assistants, and ACV and EGU office staff. A heartfelt thank-you goes to Gerrit de Rooij, the EGU Programme Committee Chair for the past three years, for his brilliant stewardship of the conference. Susanne Buiter, to whom we send a warm welcome, has now replaced Gerrit de Rooij as the chair of the Programme Committee.

As a participant, we especially welcome your suggestions and feedback, which will be instrumental to ensuring an even more successful General Assembly in 2018 (8–13 April, Vienna).
