Athens login required.

This special issue contains six manuscripts describing some of the most relevant tectonic systems of Mexico in chronological order, starting with an evaluation of its pre-Mesozoic crystalline basement. The remaining five manuscripts assess the Mesozoic-Cenozoic tectonic construction of Mexico in the context of global tectonic processes that have changed the face of the Earth over the past 200 million years.

Quaternary internationalInside - Outside: Integrating Cave and Open-Air Archives

Quaternary international vol.485 Pages 1-208 (20 August 2018)
Athens login required.

This special issue covers 14 papers that were presented at the International Science Meeting “Inside – Outside: Integrating Cave and Open-Air Archives” held in Cologne on 6-9 April 2016. It brings together experts from archaeology, geography, geology and geophysics to discuss how to correlate different archaeological records as caves, rock-shelters and open-air sites and summarises the current state of knowledge as well as insights into challenging aspects of correlating data of human occupation and palaeoenvironmental data at different tempo-spatial scales by presenting cutting-edge methods, detailed case studies and modelling approaches.
