TSG@50 Virtual Fieldtrip

We all miss field work, but since we still can’t really get out together we’re doing the next best thing! We’re kicking off TSG@50 with a virtual fieldtrip to Rhoscolyn on Anglesey, led by Geoff Lloyd (Leeds). Don’t miss this one if you want to learn how the outcrop-scale structures inform our regional-scale understanding of the Rhoscolyn Anticline, or if you want to discuss the new role of virtual geology in the most perfect setting. Be quick, the deadline is on 20th December! – Sign me up

TSG@50 goes online

We are super excited to invitie you to TSG@50, our all virtual 2021 AGM and 50th Anniversary Celebration, in the afternoons from 5th – 8th January!!! As sad as we are not to see you all in person, we promise that the virtual event will be almost as great and there will be plenty opportunity for discussion and networking across academia and industry. Make sure not to miss the abstract deadline on the 23rd November!

Registration is only £10, and free for students! So there’s really no excuse not to be there.

We Are Hiring!

Well, sort of… We will be electing a new Secretary, 2 ECR and 2 Postgrad Reps at TSG@50, our AGM in January. The Secretary is managing prizes, awards, and committee meetings (i.e. keeping us all busy), while the ECRs and PGRs are running our social media presence and this website. If this sounds like you, have a look here for further details and how to apply (deadline: 5th January). We’re looking forward to hearing from you!

Covid Update

Given the ongoing COVID 19 situation, it is with regret that we will not be holding our much anticipated annual meeting and 50th anniversary celebrations in person next year at the Geological Society in London. However, the show must go on (!), and so instead we’re super excited to announce that this years TSG annual meeting will be an online event happening, as usual, in early January! More details to follow soon, so please stay tuned to our website and social media sites. Please also note that submissions for the Dave Johnston Mapping Prize are to be made digitally this year.
