TS Must-Read - Molnar and England (1990)

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 this discussion forum for an engaging discussion of Late Cenozoic uplift of mountain ranges and global climate change: chicken or egg?, by Molnar and England (1990) that will be moderated by Armin Dielforder, Marta Marchegiano and David Fernández-Blanco

You can also comment and discuss this paper with us on Twitter (@EGU_TS) with the hashtag #molnar90 or by replying to this email.

Check our recent summary blog post of Critical taper model of fold-and-thrust belts and accretionary wedges, by Dahlen (1990), in the TS EGU blog here.
