Dr. Godin Appointed Science Editor of Lithosphere

Congratulations to Dr. Laurent Godin, who has been appointed as one of the 3 Science Editors for the GSA journal Lithosphere (3 yr term). The appointment was made based on his "broad and versatile background in geoscience, an open mind approach to science, and a progressive attitude towards alternative interpretations".

"Lithosphere provides timely publication of interdisciplinary, multidisciplinary, and cross-disciplinary research on tectonic processes that affect the crust and upper mantle, from the surface to the base of the lithosphere. The journal highlights research that addresses how the surface, crust, and mantle interact to shape the physical and chemical evolution of the lithosphere at all spatial and temporal scales."

More information can be found on the GSA website.http://lithosphere.gsapubs.org/
