    Special Issue on Isotope Geochronology


    Geochronology is a discipline that studies the chronological order of rock formation and the age of geological events. According to the order of natural formation of the strata, geologists and paleontologists divide the strata into 5 generation and 12 periods. There are two methods to represent geological time series, including relative geochronology and isotopic geochronology. The use of isotopic geochemistry as a means to study the present earth and the ancient earth is developing particularly fast. Scholars have even measured the age of meteorites, and then estimated the formation of the earth is about 4 billion 600 million years. With the development of the theoretical research and the testing technology base, geochronology has become an important basic subject in earth sciences.


    In this special issue, we intend to invite front-line researchers and authors to submit original researches and review articles on exploring Isotope Geochronology. Potential topics include, but are not limited to:

    • Circulation and evolution of crust mantle
    • The changes of ancient and modern environment
    • Thermochronology
    • Metallogenic epoch of important metal deposits
    • Isotope geochronology analysis
    • Mesozoic terrestrial biota and associated strata ages
    • Structure and thermal evolution history of oil and gas sedimentary basin
    • The era of development and extinction of important ancient biota

    Authors should read over the journal’s For Authors carefully before submission. Prospective authors should submit an electronic copy of their complete manuscript through the journal’s Paper Submission System.


    Please kindly notice that the “Special Issue” under your manuscript title is supposed to be specified and the research field “Special Issue – Isotope Geochronology” should be chosen during your submission.


    According to the following timetable:
