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.
A wide range of topics are presented at the SGTSG Denmark 2017 Conference, including:
Characterising lithosphere structure
Advances in geodynamic modelling
Continental Extensional Tectonics and Rifted Margin Evolution/Processes
Evolving microstructures in deforming rocks
Regional tectonic analysis
Role of structural processes in mineralization
Discussion session - Education in structural geology and tectonics
Rock physics and geomechanics of deformation localisation – faults fractures and shear zones
Discussion session – Statistical analysis of structures in 2D and 3D, and dealing with uncertainty
