The Deformation & Tectonics Talk Series

Let the science fly while we are all grounded



From March 2020, Covid-19 has made our life difficult and almost stopped all travelling, even short distance. For us scientist an immediate consequence has been to nail us down, ending all seminars, talks, and meeting. The DeTect Talk Series aims at giving the opportunity to colleagues, mostly early career but not only, to show the amazing research still conducted in various labs of the world despite adverse conditions.

Thus, the DeTect Talk Series is the weekly gathering of the international scientific community interested in various aspects of crustal deformation, to keep the scientific discussion alive.

For now, the series is on hold but you can still enjoy the 41 video records.
