Invitation to Submit Himalaya-Karakoram-Tibet manuscripts in Sp Vol of GSL scheduled in 2014

A ‘Special Volume’ of the ‘Geological Society of London’ on the tentative broad topic: “Tectonics of the Himalaya-Karakoram-Tibet Orogen” is being planned under the editorial handling of Soumyajit Mukherjee, Rodolfo Carosi, Peter van der Beek, Barun Kumar Mukherjee and Delores Robinson.
We invite you and your research group to submit manuscripts covering any tectonic aspects of the Himalaya-Karakoram-Tibet. We welcome both original articles and review manuscripts. Manuscripts will be peer reviewed as per the GSL policy.
In this issue, we will include- besides structural geology- surface, sub-surface and deep earth processes, igneous, metamorphic and sedimentary petrology, geochemistry, geomorphology, and geophysical aspects (plus any other approaches) aimed at unraveling the tectonics of the HKT.
We will receive manuscripts until December 31 2013, and publish the volume around July 2014.  We will appreciate if you could please send us the tentative titles of your manuscripts by 30 Nov-2012, along with a probable manuscript submission date. Please discuss with Soumyajit ( on the length of your manuscripts.
We will be happy to extend any kind of clarification and assistance you may require.We are organizing an HKT Session: TS6*/GM3.6, in the European Geosciences Union-2013, Vienna. We expect the contributors will make presentations there, but this is not a requirement. Please follow:
Kindly circulate this letter amongst the interested researchers.
