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, geodynamic modelling, structure and basin evolution

Geomorphology, geological hazards, environmental geology, climate change in South America and Antarctica, and soil research

Stratigraphy and sedimentology

Paleontology, paleoecology, paleoclimatology and Quaternary geology

Water resources, watershed dynamics, hydrology and the water cycle, effects of climate change on water resources and availability



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.
