Welcome to the online home of the Structural Geology and Tectonics research group at McMaster University! This group, headed by Dr. Alexander L. Peace, works on tectonic processes and geological structures at all scales. We are located in the School of Geography and Earth Sciences but have collaborators all over the world!


Geosciences Special Issue – “Structural, Tectonic, and Magmatic Evolution of Rifted Continental Margins”

On behalf of my co-editors Christian Schiffer and Scott Jess, I would like to draw your attention to our Special Issue “Structural, tectonic and magmatic evolution of rifted continental margins” in the open-access journal Geosciences, which is now open for submissions. Further details can be found here.

We welcome research on rifted margins across all scales, onshore and offshore, and from a wide range of methods. The submission deadline is the 31st of July 2020.

We hope that you will consider a contribution to this Special Issue.
