Papers must have a regional appeal and should present work of more than local significance. Research papers dealing with the regional geology of South American cratons and mobile belts, within the following research fields:

  • Economic geology, metallogenesis and hydrocarbon genesis and reservoirs
  • Geophysics, geochemistry, volcanology, igneous and metamorphic petrology
  • Tectonics, neo- and seismotectonics and geodynamic modeling
  • Geomorphology, geological hazards, environmental geology, climate change in America and Antarctica, and soil research
  • Stratigraphy, sedimentology, structure and basin evolution
  • Paleontology, paleoecology, paleoclimatology and Quaternary geology

New developments in already established regional projects and new initiatives dealing with the geology of the continent will be summarized and presented on a regular basis. Short notes, discussions, book reviews and conference and workshop reports will also be included when relevant.
