TS Must-Read - Buck (1991) + Cowie and Scholz (1992)

Dear colleagues,

The “TS Must-read” team of early-career scientists of the EGU Tectonics and Structural Geology (TS) Division presents the next paper up for discussion from the list of contributions selected by the TS community.

Starting today join us on two different discussion forums: you can dive into this discussion forum for an engaging discussion of Modes of continental lithospheric extension, by Buck (1991) that will be moderated by Peng Chao, Gianluca Frasca and Benoît Petri; and you can also enjoy some fault mechanics discussion at this forum about Physical explanation for the displacement-length relationship of faults using a post-yield fracture mechanics model, by Cowie and Scholz (1992) that will be moderated by Adriana Guatame-García, Gino de Gelder and Akinbobola Akintomide.

You can also comment and discuss these papers with us on Twitter (@EGU_TS) with the hashtag #buck91 and #cowie92, or by replying to this email.

Check our recent summary blog post of Surface uplift, uplift of rocks, and exhumation of rocks, by England and Molnar (1990), in the TS EGU blog here.

Follow us on Reddit and/or Twitter to stay tuned!
