Specialist Group in Tectonics and Structural Geology (SGTSG)

GSA Homepage for the Specialist Group

Upcoming Events

8-12 November 2017, Denmark, Western Australia
The conference aims to bring together the research community in structural geology and tectonics within Australia and internationally to discuss the latest research and developments in these fields. We plan to maintain the relaxed, informal atmosphere of previous SGTSG conferences, and strongly encourage student attendance and presentations. The conference will include a mid-conference field trip to see the spectacular local geology as well as other events. We hope that the conference will provide a nurturing networking experience for all attendees.
