TSG LOGO COMPETITION
We’re currently in the process of updating and modernising the
Tectonic Studies Group website, and as part of this we think it is
about time we gave the TSG logo an update too! Rather than the
committee coming up with something, we’d like to make this a bit
more interactive with the TSG community, so have decided to run
a TSG logo competition.
The winning design will be used on the soon to be re-launched
TSG website and Facebook Page (link on the left), and at all
TSG badged events, so it needs to be simple, memorable, and
epitomise structural geology and/or tectonics.
Here's the low-down on the competition:
- The competition is open to all members of the TSG community
(staff and students)
- Deadline is 23:59 (GMT) on Friday 24th May 2013
- Image files should be sent in a digital raster format (e.g. JPEG,
PNG, PDF), and include a short explanation of the design.
- Designs should be sent via email to Pedro Galindo
- The winning design will be chosen by the committee in early
- The competition winner will receive £100 credit to spend at
the Geol. Soc. bookshop
as well as having the satisfaction in knowing that their design
will be used to promote TSG for years to come!
TSG will be running two field trips during early Summer 2013
The first trip will be to the NW Highlands of Scotland 2nd-7th June, running
in parallel with a GSA trip lead by Rob Butler (University of Aberdeen) and
Rick Law (Virginia Tech). The trip will cover a range of deformation styles
in the deep crust through various forms of mylonites and cataclasites up
to faulting and damage zones in analogue hydrocarbon reservoirs. Fot
we will see structural features formed during brittle and ductile deformations
in a number of lithologies. Key localities include; the Walls Boundary Fault (a
crustal scale strike slip fault on par with the San Andreas fault scale), a cross
section through the Unst- Fetlar ophiolite and the internationally famous Funzie
conglomerate (the basis for classic strain analysis developed by Derek Flinn (1956).
TSG Annual General Meeting January 2014 will be in Cardiff.
The annual TSG AGM and other TSG-badged meetings will be displayed in this section. Click on the meeting titles for more information.
This meeting will be held between 3rd and 5th January 2013 hosted by Leeds University at The Queens Hotel, Leeds.
Abstract deadline and early bird registration: 2nd November 2012
Final Registration: 30th November 2012
This meeting will be held between 28th and 30th November 2012, held at The Geological Society, Burlington House, London.
TSG AGMThis meeting is Europe's premier forum for ground-breaking research in structural geology and tectonics.
