The Palaeozoic geological historical past of western South the USA has been the point of interest of excessive overseas curiosity within the previous couple of years. This publication brings jointly multidisciplinary study and overview papers at the decrease Palaeozoic geology of the Sierras Pampeanas and the Precordillera of imperative west Argentina. It bargains with the ultimate phases of meeting of the supercontinent of Gondwana and a interval of tectonic interplay with Laurentia (the North American continent of today). The facts for the expansion of this a part of the margin of Gondwana from past due Neoproterozoic occasions is gifted by way of stratigraphy, palaeontology, igneous petrology, geochemistry and geochronology, and rival tectonic speculation are seriously in comparison. at the very least episodes of subduction-related marginal basin closure and terrane accretion are documented and re-assessed. additionally on hand: The Geology of Chile - ISBN 1862392196 West Gondwana: Pre-Cenozoic Correlations around the South Atlantic area - targeted ebook no 294 - ISBN 1862392471 The Geological Society of LondonFounded in 1807, the Geological Society of London is the oldest geological society on the earth, and one of many greatest publishers within the Earth sciences.The Society publishes a variety of fine quality peer-reviewed titles for lecturers and pros operating within the geosciences, and enjoys an enviable overseas recognition for the standard of its work.The many parts within which we post in include:-Petroleum geology-Tectonics, structural geology and geodynamics-Stratigraphy, sedimentology and paleontology-Volcanology, magmatic reports and geochemistry-Remote sensing-History of geology-Regional geology courses
