Geological magazineAdvances in palaeogeography

Geological magazine vol.156 no.2 Pages 179-407 (February 2019)
Athens login required.

This special issue presents a collection of ten papers addressing a wide range of topics related to palaeogeography. These are grouped under four categories: (1) historical considerations on palaeogeography, continental drift, and plate tectonics, (2) methods and techniques used for palaeogeographic and plate tectonic reconstructions, including a presentation of a selection of time slices, (3) highlighting the importance of palaeogeography for Earth's climatic evolution, and (4) presenting examples of the use of palaeogeographic knowledge for the exploration of natural resources.

Palaeogeography, palaeoclimatology, palaeoecologyPalaeogeographic, palaeoclimatic and palaeoecologic evolution of eastern Tethys during the Mesozoic and Cenozoic

Palaeogeography, palaeoclimatology, palaeoecology vol.515 Pages 1-172 (1 February 2019)
Athens login required.

The papers contained in this special issue include the latest research results in magmatic petrology, geochemistry, palaeontology and sedimentology from the eastern Tethys. A multitude of issues relating to the evolution of the Tethys are covered, such as the timing of initiation of the Neo-Tethys, the properties of the Bangong-Nujiang Tethys, the rifting process of the Indian plate, palaeoenvironmental events during Tethyan evolution, the impact on terrestrial ecosystems of closure of the Tethys, and the effects of uplift of the Qinghai-Xizang Plateau.

Journal of paleontologyCarboniferous chondrichthyan assemblages from the Surprise Canyon and Watahomigi formations (latest Mississippian–Early Pennsylvanian) of the western Grand Canyon, Northern Arizona

Journal of paleontology vol.92 supplement S77 Pages 1-33 (December 2018)
Athens login required.

This volume contains descriptions of fossils found during surveys of the Grand Canyon during the 1980s. These include new taxa and new species.

Quaternary science reviewsArchives of humans, environments and their interactions

Quaternary science reviews vol.202 Pages 1-224 (15 December 2018)
Athens login required.

This volume contains papers on palaeoecology, and palaeoclimatology based on recent work in Arabia, Australia, the Balkans, Ethiopia, Greenland, Italy, Mexico, Turkey, and Uganda.

Palaeogeography, palaeoclimatology, palaeoecologyCenozoic climate change in Eastern Asia - part II

Palaeogeography, palaeoclimatology, palaeoecology vol.512 Pages 1-166 (26 December 2018)
Athens login required.

This special issue contains a series of multidisciplinary studies on paleovegetation, sedimentology, clay mineralogy, geochemistry, magnetostratigraphy, and climate modelling. It includes geochemical studies of terrestrial deposits from different regions of eastern Asia as well as climate modelling. Some of these papers focus on the impact or effect of these climatic changes on various floras and faunas in this region. The period investigated ranges from the Eocene to the middle Holocene, thus encompassing most of the Cenozoic. Part 1 was published as Palaeogeography, palaeoclimatology, palaeoecology vol.510.

Environmental geochemistry and healthEarth materials and human health

Environmental geochemistry and health vol.40 issue 5 Pages 1697-2242 (October 2018)
Athens login required.

The papers in this volume address the environmental risk associated with the widespread contamination of environmental compartments for human health and ecosystems, how the physicochemical, mineralogical and biological characteristics of the solid/aqueous matrix that contains the contaminant determine the magnitude of the health risks, and finally the complex interrelationships inherent to the use of multidisciplinary datasets integrating environmental assessment with human exposure.
