who we are

The Tectonic Studies Group (TSG) has existed since the early 1970s as a forum for discussion of research in structural geology and tectonics. It has the status of a specialist group afilliated to the Geological Society of London, but has no formal membership. All are welcome to attend meetings and to propose and organize events such as conferences, workshops and field excursions.

The lack of formality of TSG meetings provides a suitable environment for the testing of new ideas and the discussion of research in progress. The group particularly encourages young researchers to present their results.

Our meetings attract participants from both universities and industry. The group has benefitted from generous sponsorship from industry in recent years. The Tectonic Studies Group gratefully acknowledges industry sponsorship for its recent meetings and fieldtrips. In recent years, significant contributions have been received from various companies including BP, ExxonMobil, Shell, Statoil, Amerada Hess, and Encana.
