Friedrich-Schiller-Universität Jena


TSK Jena 2018 is the 17th Symposium of Tectonics, Structural Geology and Crystalline Geology. It is hosted at the Friedrich Schiller University Jena, in the city of light, Jena.

The TSK symposia intend to offer young and early career geoscientists a stage for their research. We therefore especially encourage PhD students and post-docs as well as undergraduate students to actively contribute to the symposium. Of course, we also address the more experienced scientist.


Scientific objectives

We welcome contributions ranging from the study of intra-crystalline deformation processes of naturally and experimentally deformed rocks to orogen-scale studies of active and inactive accretionary systems and genetically associated sedimentary basins, as well as large-scale, plate tectonic reconstructions.

Similarly, we encourage contributions covering many temporal scales, ranging from slow viscous creep associated with solid-state metamorphic reactions during the formation of ductile shear zones to the rapid deformation recorded during seismic events in actively deforming plate margin settings.
