Quaternary internationalQuaternary of Croatia

Quaternary international vol.494 Pages 1-326 (20 November 2018)
Athens login required.

Seven of the 22 papers included in this special issue were presented at an interdisciplinary workshop on the Quaternary of Croatia held in Zagreb in 2015 as a final part of a Croatian-German bilateral project entitled “Tools for modelling past and future global climate change: Case study of loess-palaeosol sequences (Quaternary aeolian deposits) from Istria and Kvarner (North Adriatic area)”. Topics covered include, the island of Susak situated at the outermost corner of the Kvarner archipelago and southeast of the Istrian peninsula in the North Adriatic Sea; recent lake sediments; (palaeo)environmental changes, human-induced impact and palaeoclimate; and loess, loess-like and alluvial sediments and pseudogleyed loess derivates.

Athens login required.

The volume contains 15 papers on water transported by subducting slabs; the Central Asian Orogenic Belt; Palaeozoic megasequences from Beishan; eclogites, Alaskan-type intrusion, and potash granites from Mongolia; the provenance of the Permian Akiyoshi belt, SW Japan; Late Palaeozoic granitoids from central Qiangtang, northern Tibet; the Late Palaeoproterozoic tectono-thermal event, and Proterozoic rapakivi granite in the North China craton; Mesozoic granitic magmatism in Anhui and Zhejiang provinces, China; and magmatic pulses of the Tatun volcano, and methane isotopes of Shinyannyuhu mud volcano in Taiwan. Part 1 containing 25 papers was published as Journal of Asian earth sciences vol.145[B].

Palaeogeography, palaeoclimatology, palaeoecologyCenozoic climate change in Eastern Asia - part 1

Palaeogeography, palaeoclimatology, palaeoecology vol.510 Pages 1-152 (1 December 2018)
Athens login required.

This special issue provides new studies in the field of Cenozoic climate change in eastern Asia. The papers examine a range of topics including palaeovegetation, sedimentology, clay mineralogy, geochemistry, magnetostratigraphy, and climate modelling. These relate to the Asian monsoon and aridification of the Asian inland, and Cenozoic climate changes in eastern Asia.
