Aims and Scope


Tectonics presents original scientific contributions that describe and explain the evolution, structure, and deformation of Earth¹s lithosphere. Contributions are welcome from any relevant area of research, including field, laboratory, petrological, geochemical, geochronological, geophysical, remote-sensing, and modeling studies. Multidisciplinary studies are particularly encouraged. Tectonics welcomes studies across the range of geologic time.

A publication of AGU with editorial collaboration from the European Geosciences Union.
