Call for papers: Alpine Workshop

Swiss Journal of Geosciences welcomes submissions to the new article collection 'Alpine Workshop’.

The Alps have always fascinated travellers because of the extraordinary variety of its stunning landscapes. The beauty of this mountain belt is the result of several geological processes that have modelled throughout time the Alpine region. Understanding the geological history of this belt, in the past as well as in the present, is fundamental to unravel mechanisms leading to mountain building and its subsequent erosion, but also to civil engineering (for tunneling) as well as to resource management (for hydroelectricity). This collection aims to cover contributions across multiple disciplines (tectonics and structural geology, petrology and geochemistry, sedimentology and basin analysis, geophysics and geomorphology), relevant to the history and present dynamics of the Alpine belt.

Submissions may include but are not restricted to the following topics:

magmatic and metamorphic petrology
inherited structures
