Cretaceous researchAdvances in Cretaceous palaeontology and stratigraphy

Cretaceous research vol.87 Pages 1-444 (July 2018)
Athens login required.

The geographical range of papers contained in this issue extends from Northern Ireland to the Russian Caucasus Mountains, and in stratigraphical age, there is full coverage from the Jurassic–Cretaceous to the Cretaceous–Paleogene boundaries. Biologically speaking, taxonomic groups involved include dinoflagellates and calcareous nannoplankton on one end of the spectrum to mosasaurid and plesiosaur reptiles on the other.

TectonophysicsPhysics of earthquake rupture propagation

Athens login required.

This special issue contains 18 articles grouped in the following categories. 1. Review of past megathrust earthquakes; 2. Geometric control on earthquake faulting; 3. Interplay between fluids and earthquakes; 4. Earthquake source properties from observations; 5. Physics of fault rupture: Insights from laboratory experiments; 6. Earthquake cycle simulations.

Marine geophysical researchSeafloor backscatter data from swath mapping echosounders: from technological development to novel applications

Marine geophysical research vol.39 issue 1-2 Pages 1-347 (June 2018)
Athens login required.

The 19 papers in this special issue are organized in four groups addressing the following areas of research and development: (1) status and expectations, (2) sonar calibration; (3) backscatter data processing and uncertainty; and (4) applications and new developments.

Quaternary internationalThe Quaternary of continental Europe: stratigraphy, correlation and new data

Quaternary international vol.478 Pages 1-108 (10 June 2018)
Athens login required.

The papers in this volume cover Germany, Serbia, Russia, and Poland, and discuss the Pliocene – Pleistocene boundary; Gelasian – Early Pleistocene boundary; Early – Middle Pleistocene boundary; Middle – Late Pleistocene boundary and Late Pleistocene – Holocene boundary. There are also several papers on luminescence dating.

Geoscience frontiersGreenstone belts and their mineral endowment

Geoscience frontiers vol.9 issue 3 Pages 599-964 (May 2018)
No login required.

This special issue contains seven papers addressing questions on Archean plate tectonics and mantle dynamics, fluid-crust-mantle interactions and tectonic control on greenstone hosted mineralization thereby providing advanced perceptions towards understanding the evolution of asthenosphere-lithosphere system over geological time and its involvement in crustal growth and metallogenic processes associated with Archean greenstone belts.

Chemical geologyAccessory mineral and trace element geochemistry

Chemical geology vol.484 Pages 1-232 (5 May 2018)
Athens login required.



This volume contains 17 papers on electron microprobe dating and its use in geochemical research.

International journal of coal geologyProceedings of the 33rd Annual TSOP Meeting, held jointly with AASP and ICCP

International journal of coal geology vol.190 Pages 1-240 (1 April 2018)
Athens login required.

This special issue presents full papers of the key presentations from the first joint meeting of The Society for Organic Petrology (TSOP), The Palynological Society (AASP) and the International Committee for Coal and Organic Petrology (ICCP). These provide a snapshot of the state-of-the-art in the multiple disciplines represented by this joint meeting.

LethaiaContextualizing the onset of the Great Ordovician Biodiversification Event

Lethaia vol.51 issue 2 Pages 149-323 (April 2018)
Athens login required.

This special issue captures many of the talks and posters presented during the 1st meeting of IGCP project, 653 The Onset of the Great Ordovician Biodiversification Event. These are supplemented by a number of other key and related papers solicited by the editors. This issue exposes some of the large volumes of research, directly and indirectly, related to this and previous projects and helps place the GOBE in context with respect to the start and finish of the event. The papers are grouped into global challenges, important taxonomic groups and key regional successions.

Quaternary internationalIntegrated geophysical and (geo)archaeological explorations in wetlands

Quaternary international vol.473 part A Pages 1-140 (15 April 2018)
Athens login required.

The papers in this special issue are based on selected contributions from the geophysical and geoarchaeological workshop in Graben (22nd to 24th April 2015) and the international conference “Harbours from the Roman Period to the Middle Ages” in Kiel (30th September to 3rd October 2015).

Marine and petroleum geology10 years of Lusi eruption - lessons learned about modern and ancient piercement systems

Marine and petroleum geology vol.90 Pages 1-208 (February 2018)
Athens login required.

This special issue collects recent multidisciplinary work completed in the framework of the ERC-funded LUSI LAB project. These studies were conducted at and near Lusi. Contributions span across disciplines such as engineering, geochemistry, geophysics, geology and numerical modelling, including fieldwork, laboratory and theoretical approaches. The acquired results contribute to characterise the dynamics of complex interactions between volcanism and an ongoing erupting clastic system.
