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.

Current issue of the EGU newsletter

The meeting programme for the EGU General Assembly 2019 (7–12 April, Vienna) was published this month. With more than 1000 scientific sessions, debates, short courses and side events, and close to 17,000 abstracts, it promises to be a varied and exciting meeting. If you have not yet registered, please do so by the end of today to get reduced registration rates.

This month the EGU has also issued a response to potential changes to the European Research Council, one of the world’s leading and most respected funders of frontier research, designed and governed by scientists. "Without this close relationship with the research community, the ERC’s ability to support the very best frontier science will be compromised," the statement reads.

The EGU has also announced a new award for Earth, planetary and space science journalism this month. The Angela Croome Award is the newest edition to the EGU awards and medals portfolio, joining the newly renamed Julia and Johannes Weertman Medal, the recently launched Katia and Maurice Krafft Award for geoscience outreach and engagement, and many other prestigious honours.

Last but not the least, we are sad to report that Lily Pereg, Deputy President and Programme Group Chair of the EGU Soil System Sciences (SSS) Division and Executive Editor of the SOIL journal, passed away in January. Read the obituary on the EGU website.
