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 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.

How to reduce your carbon footprint when attending EGU’s General Assembly

How to reduce your carbon footprint when attending EGU’s General Assembly

In October 2019, an open letter was published, addressing both EGU and AGU regarding their policy to reduce the carbon footprint of their annual conferences. Almost 2000 scientists already signed this letter, asking for more ambitious measures to decline carbon emissions, in line with the goals of 50% reduction by 2030 and near-zero emissions by 2050 (IPCC SR15, 2018). Some of the proposed improvements include the facilitation of organised transport (e.g., trains or buses) from major cities in Europe, as …


Beyond Tectonics: How mountain building shaped biodiversity

Beyond Tectonics: How mountain building shaped biodiversity

This edition of “Beyond Tectonics” is brought to you by Lydian Boschman. Lydian is a postdoctoral researcher at ETH Zürich. She has a background in geology and plate tectonic reconstructions, but now works with a group of biodiversity modelers of the Landscape Ecology group at ETH, bridging the gap between geology and biology. In her research, she focuses on the uplift history of the Andes, and how mountain building caused species radiations, and ultimately, shaped the modern patterns of biodiversity …


Sendai, living on the edge!

Sendai, living on the edge!

Sendai and its people live on the edge. The city and its citizens learned to live over a subduction zone. Sendai has survived 500 years of hazards; it is a resilient and industrious city. People know disaster will strike again, but also that they will rise up when it does. Japan, ‘the sunrise country’, would be much better named ‘the land of sinking tectonic plates’. Above the point where the Pacific plate sinks below East Asia and the Philippine Sea …


Features from the field: Bedding/Stratification

Features from the field: Bedding/Stratification

Bedding (also called stratification) is one of the most prominent features of sedimentary rocks, which are usually made up of ‘piles’ of layers (called ‘strata‘) of sediments deposited one on top of another. Every stratum is characterized by its own lithology (composition), sedimentary structures, grain size and fossil content that make it unique and different from the strata that lie above and below it. Every layer represents an event, a moment in the geological time when chemical, biological, and physical …

Current issue of the EGU newsletter

We are looking forward to welcoming all participants to the 2020 EGU General Assembly on 3–8 May in Vienna. In addition to many exciting scientific sessions, the meeting will feature hundreds of short courses and networking events plus a packed exhibition hall!

The 2020 General Assembly will also continue a number of traditions, including the popular Imaggeo Photo Contest. You have until 15 February 2020 to enter your photos and videos for a chance to win fame and fortune – in the form of a free registration to next year’s General Assembly. Another tradition is the annual mentoring programme, which supports first-time conference attendees and helps them assemble their own professional networks. The programme, which only lasts for the duration of the General Assembly, depends on both mentors and mentees signing up; brief applications are due by 8 March 2020.

In case you missed them: here are the winners of the EGU's Best Blog Posts and the Best of Imaggeo 2019 competitions as well as the year’s Top 10 most-read blog posts. (The most read? Think Game of Thrones.)

Do you have a geoscience outreach project you’d like to develop? The call for funding is open until 15 February 2020 for EGU Public Engagement Grants. Winners receive 1500 EUR and one free registration to next year’s General Assembly.

If you’d like to organise a meeting addressing a focused, cutting-edge topic at the frontiers of geoscience research, you have until 29 February 2020 to propose an EGU Galileo Conference.
