After decades of study, we still do not know:
• What forces drive Earth’s tectonic plates
• Under what conditions subduction zones initiate
• The mechanical conditions that favour folding over faulting
• The mechanical conditions that favour aseismic over seismic slip
• How earthquakes originate and what conditions determine their sizes
• What conditions determine whether an injected dyke reaches the surface
• The energy sources in fault zones and volcanoes available for slips and eruptions
The answers to all these indirect questions fall within the scientific fields covered by Structural Geology and Tectonics, which is a specialty section of Frontiers in Earth Science. And there are many more unanswered questions and unsolved problems within structural geology and tectonics, both as regards ductile and brittle deformation.
Structural Geology and Tectonics welcomes submissions within the general field of structural geology and tectonics. Papers on all aspects of structural geology and tectonics, both theoretical and applied, are welcome. These include papers that focus on the following:
• Field studies
• Analogue models
• Analytical models
• Numerical models
• Remote-sensing studies
Structural Geology and Tectonics aims at publishing top-quality papers on research results that derive from using these and related approaches and methods. Papers that are quantitative and combine two or more of the above approaches are particularly welcome.
