The diverse papers in this ongoing special volume of Geosphere demonstrate both the multidisciplinary approach and the breadth of geoscience information that is required to understand the tectonic history and coupled metallogeny of the Great Basin. These papers provide a wealth of information on wide-ranging topics that include overviews on the tectonic evolution and metallogeny of the Great Basin; databases and syntheses on various aspects of the geology, geophysics, geochemistry, and mineral deposit types; site-specific studies and comparisons; and geologic maps and models that frame numerical simulations of hydrothermal fluid flow in important mining districts. Because of their diversity, these papers will appeal to a wide range of earth scientists interested in these topics and approaches in the Great Basin and in analogous areas in other parts of the world. The most recent papers can be found at the bottom.
