The pre-Andean architecture of north western South America has played a pre-determinative role in the development of the Northern Andean orogenic system. 16 contributions analyze key stratigraphic, structural, metamorphic, magmatic and tectonic questions, and provide solutions as far as the most recent published field-based studies permit.

News & Announcements. Resolution of Thanks. RESOLVED that the Executive Committee and Officers of The Geological Society of America (GSA) do recognize and congratulate the North-Central Section of GSA for hosting the first virtual section meeting and conference on May EXPLORATION AND DISCOVERYEuropean exploration and discovery was transformed during the eighteenth century by what Mary Louise Pratt calls "the knowledge-building project of natural history" (p. 24). A foundation stone of this project was the botanical classificatory system of the Swedish naturalist Carl Linne (Linnaeus), which offered a comprehensive method of arranging all plant species in. Approximately exploration wells (wildcat, step-out, and reservoir evaluation) have been drilled in the Timan-Pechora Basin. The basin was explored generally from south to north and west to east in response to the exploration expeditions mentioned above, which thoroughly evaluated all main exploration targets in the onshore portion of the.
