Submit to this Special Issue on Mesozoic-Cenozoic Tectono-Magmatic Evolution of Iran

Deadline: 31 July 2019

The editorial team of International Geology Review invites contributions to a special issue entitled “Mesozoic-Cenozoic tectono-magmatic evolution of Iran”.

Since Early Mesozoic times, the geodynamic setting of Iran has been controlled by plate interactions on its southwestern margin.  These interactions evolved from formation of a new subduction zone to subduction of Neotethys along the Zagros convergence zone and back-arc extension during Mesozoic times, to magmatic flare-up in Paleogene time and collision with Arabia beginning in mid-Cenozoic time. This tectonic evolution was accompanied by intraplate deformation in Central Iran and controlled Mesozoic-Cenozoic magmatism within the different tectonic domains. This special issue intends to bring together diverse contributions to our understanding of Iran magmatic evolution related to evolving subduction, collision, hot spots and continental rifts. A wide range of contributions are encouraged, including assessment of geochemical fingerprints, the paleo-tectonic setting of formation and the spatio-temporal distribution of Iranian igneous rocks useful for reconstructing the paleogeographic settings and tectonic history of Iran in Mesozoic and Cenozoic time.
