Division on Tectonics and Structural Geology

President: Claudio Rosenberg (ts@egu.eu)
Deputy President: Magdalena Scheck-Wenderoth (leni@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.

Call for abstracts to the EGU 2019 General Assembly now open!

The EGU 2019 General Assembly, taking place in Vienna (Austria) on 7–12 April 2019, will bring together geoscientists from all over the world to one meeting covering all disciplines of the Earth, planetary and space sciences. The deadline for abstract submission is 10 January 2019 or, for those applying for Roland Schlich travel support, 1 December 2018. Only 2019 EGU members will be able to submit abstracts as first author to the 2019 meeting and, with a few exceptions outlined below, only one abstract as first author will be permitted.

Call for Session Proposals

The next EGU General Assembly 2019 (EGU2019) will be held at the Austria Center Vienna (ACV) from 07 to 12 April 2019. The call for session proposals is now open until 06 September 2018. If you have a good idea for a session that fits the TS division objectives, please go ahead and propose one! You can do this at: https://meetingorganizer.copernicus.org/EGU2019/provisionalprogramme

NEW IN 2019

a) For the first time, the skeleton programme consists only of the programme groups and their sub-programme groups. The programme groups do not show sessions from last year. This means that all session proposals need to be submitted, also those on classic topics in the community.

b) The deadline for suggesting Union Symposia and Great Debates is 15 August 2018. Please see the guidelines (https://www.egu2019.eu/guidelines/us_and_gdb_guidelines.html) for more information.

Lisbon at the down of modern geosciences

Lisbon at the down of modern geosciences

Here, where the land ends and the sea begins… Luís de Camões (Portuguese poet) Lisbon. Spilled over the silver Tagus River, it is known by its beautiful low light, incredible food and friendly people. Here, cultures met, and poets dreamed, as navigators gathered to plan their journeys to old and new worlds. Fustigated by one of the greatest disasters the world has ever witnessed, Lisbon is intertwined with the course of Earth Sciences. For some, modern seismology was born here. …
