Each month we feature specific Divisions of EGU and during the monthly GeoRoundup we will be putting the journals that publish science from those Divisions at the top of the Highlights roundup. For July, the Divisions we are featuring are: Geodesy (G), Ocean Science (OS) and Tectonics and Structural Geology (TS). They are served by the journals: Geoscientific Model Development (GMD), Ocean Science (OS) and Solid Earth (SE).
Pangea was assembled during Devonian to early Permian times and resulted in a large-scale and winding orogeny that today transects Europe, northwestern Africa, and eastern North America. This orogen is characterized by an S shape corrugated geometry in Iberia. This paper presents the advances and milestones in our understanding of the geometry and kinematics of the Central Iberian curve from the last decade with particular attention paid to structural and paleomagnetic studies.

EGU Science in the News
A snapshot of recent English-speaking news coverage based on research published in all 19 of EGU’s open access journals:
- The great staycation – how the coronavirus pandemic could push a rapid transition to creative domestic holidays, based on a study by Marty et al. in The Cryosphere.
- Large-scale hydrological and water resources model aids in the accurate assessment of water supply and demand, based on a GMD study by Burek et al.
- Potent GHG SF6 rapidly accumulating in atmosphere, driven by demand for SF6-insulated switchgear in developing countries, based on an ACP study by Simmonds et al.
- Italy’s melting glaciers face new threat: Pink ice and Pink ice in the Alps: how threatening to glaciers can it be?, both based a study in The Cryosphere by Zekollari et al.
