Division on Tectonics and Structural Geology

President: Claudio Rosenberg (ts@egu.eu)
Deputy President: Paola Vannucchi (paola.vannucchi@unifi.it)

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 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.

TS Must-Read – Armijo et al. (1986) Quaternary extension in southern Tibet: field observations and tectonic implications

This contribution is a very detailed field report of the Sino-French expedition in eastern Tibet that took place in 1980-1982. Armijo and coauthors accurately analyse the different tectonic styles present in the north and south of the Yarlung-Zangbo Suture Zone, frequently defined as the “chord” joining the eastern and western syntaxes of the Himalayan orogen (Fig. 1). North of the chord, strike-slip faulting dominates over normal faulting, with rifts being localised at junctions between strike-slip segments and characterised by diffused …


TS Must-Read – Lister and Snoke (1984) S-C Mylonites

Following the impact of the global plate kinematics revolution, researchers in the 70s and 80s made significant efforts to compare records of deformed rocks in outcrops to large-scale deformation and kinematics. By publishing “S-C Mylonites” 1984, Gordon A. Lister and Arthur W. Snoke gave a step forward for the TS community. The paper contributed to transitioning from a strain-dominated framework of interpreting fabrics at all scales (Ramsay, 1967) towards a kinematics-dominated one. The article recapitulated the rock deformation processes and …

Josefa Cuevas de Sansores (24-02-1920 – 2010) – Mexico’s first woman geological engineer

Josefa Cuevas Sansores was born on the 24th of March, 1920 to Andrea Aguilar Argüello. Andrea was a professor herself and graduated in 1929 specializing in ‘Instrucción Primaria Inferior y Superior’. She used the knowledge she had gained during her studies to found several kindergartens in Yucatán, one still carrying her name). Josefa had three older sisters, two of which became school teachers, which surely contributed to her interest to study. Her elementary, middle and high school education she received …

Mind your Head: An introduction to Workplace Bullying in Academia

Understanding workplace aggression is a complex matter, and many questions arise when trying to tackle the issue. For instance, which acts and behaviours classify as workplace aggression, and when does something become workplace bullying or mobbing? How can you recognize if you or a co-worker/friend are the target of workplace aggression? How can you protect yourself and/or support others? What can we do to stop harmful behaviours from individuals or overarching structures? What do institutions need to do in order …

Current issue of the EGU newsletter

With the start of the virtual EGU General Assembly 2021 less than three weeks away, the March newsletter is filled with the information you need to register, create an accessible (and effective) vPICO presentation, and understand the vEGU21 time-block schedule. You can also take a first look around the new conference platform, which promises a much more complete experience than EGU was able to offer last year.

The Loupe also highlights practical information applicable to vEGU21 and beyond, including how to get the most out of online conferences; how to balance the schedule and your commitments with caring responsibilities; and how to take advantage of display uploads and commenting to continue interacting with colleagues beyond the meeting’s two week-duration.

In addition to the latest Journal Watch and GeoRoundup of this month’s EGU journal highlights, this issue also looks at two current policy-related topics: the pressure that democracy is under from the influence of social media, and how you can achieve policy impact.
