This Special Issue focuses on detrital mineral geochronology. Geochronology of detrital minerals is a rapidly developing analytical tool in Earth science research due to the widespread occurrence of zircons, apatites, rutiles, and other minerals in the sedimentary record. U-Pb ages can be used to constrain the age of sedimentation of the host sediment, reconstruct sediment transport pathways and provenance areas, and characterize different aspects of the geological evolution of source regions. For this Special Issue, we invite authors to submit papers on the geochronological dating of detrital minerals and their application for understanding tectonics and paleogeography. Papers covering different aspects of the methodology of data acquisition and interpretation are welcome, too.

Manuscript Submission Information
Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All submissions that pass pre-check are peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Minerals is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 2400 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
