Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (31 August 2023) | Viewed by 6547
Interests: tectonics; paleoenvironmental changes; magnetostratigraphy
Interests: growth and evolution of the Tibetan Plateau during the Cenozoic time; the influence of climate related to landscape evolution
Continental evolution, responsible for the evolution of the Earth’s mountain ranges and sedimentary basins, is a crucial element of Earth science. Sedimentary basins preserve thick sediments that document a vast range of geological processes with timing constraints. Over the last few decades, and especially the past decade, many new mineralogical and magnetostratigraphic datasets have been produced from basins of the Tibetan Plateau and the surrounding regions, to reveal the tectonic history of plateau evolution and its effects on climate changes. These diverse datasets coupled with rapid developments in analytical methods have provided us with robust investigative approaches to interpret these diverse geological records. This Special Issue provides an opportunity to present recent results in this area, and hopes to use these mineralogical and magnetostratigraphic datasets to form a comprehensive understanding of the dynamics of tectono-sedimentary systems in the Tibetan Plateau and the adjacent areas. We hope to attract geologists studying the continental evolution and sedimentary basins of Asia, with broad tectonic, climatic, and biotic implications.

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.
