This quantity honours the profession of Brian F. Windley, who has been highly influential in assisting to accomplish our present knowing of the evolution of the continental crust, and who has encouraged many scholars and scientists to pursue reports at the evolution of the continents. Brian has studied approaches of continental formation and evolution on so much continents and of every age, and has informed and encouraged generations of geologists to adopt careers in reviews of continental evolution. the amount is geared up into six sections, together with: oceanic and island arc structures and continental development; tectonics of accretionary orogens and continental development; progress and stabilization of continental crust; collisions and intraplate approaches; Precambrian tectonics and the delivery of continents; and energetic tectonics and geomorphology of continental collision and progress zones.

Founded in 1807, the Geological Society of London is the oldest geological society on this planet, and one of many greatest publishers within the Earth sciences.
The Society publishes a variety of top quality peer-reviewed titles for lecturers and execs operating within the geosciences, and enjoys an enviable foreign attractiveness for the standard of its work.
The many parts within which we put up in include:
-Tectonics, structural geology and geodynamics
-Stratigraphy, sedimentology and paleontology
-Volcanology, magmatic stories and geochemistry
