Information Theory is gaining many new applications in broad areas of Science, particularly the in the domain of Complex Adaptive Systems. These new applications often blend theoretical developments of Information Theory with innovative applications to complex-systems problems in the geosciences. This special issue specifically emphasizes research that addresses Geoscience problems using Information Theory approaches, by introducing a novel development of Information Theory for specific applications, and/or by solving a new Geoscience problem using the tools of Information Theory. Submissions at the boundaries of Information Theory, the Geosciences, and other disciplines are also welcome.

Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. Papers will be published continuously (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are refereed through a peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page.
