TS
Tectonics and Structural Geology

David Fernández-Blanco

David Fernández-Blanco's research explores how the Earth's vertical motions evolve over time. David's research agenda covers post-rift events in Morocco, big transform faults in Sumatra, orogenic plateau growth in Turkey and interaction of plate boundaries in Greece. Using fieldwork and taking a holistic stand, he combines geomorphology, tectono-stratigraphy and structural geology approaches at regional scales. His passion for research is reflected in active community involvement and geo-communication efforts. David is now the Representative of the TS Early Career Scientists, so get in contact via e-mail, reach him at @_GeoDa_ or visit his webpage.

Must-read papers in tectonics and structural geology – Introduction

The “TS Must-read papers” activity can be described as a virtual paper-discussion forum. A total of 103 voters within the TS community nominated 381 “Must read” papers researching topics within tectonics and structural geology, and we, 12 early-career scientists with diverse backgrounds, a.k.a. the TS Must-read papers team, promote in different media the contributions that were the most voted to d ...[Read More]
