The stratigraphic evolution of sedimentary basins provides information about (1) the spatial and temporal development of depositional settings; (2) the geotectonic settings; and (3) the climatic conditions. Stratigraphy and sequence stratigraphy have applications in evaluating the basin-forming mechanisms, such as subduction-driven, orogenic, and rifting processes that are also important for the industry. Despite the documented deviations in different parts of the same basin, the sedimentary fill of basins is sometimes comparable between basins situated in similar geotectonic settings. Sedimentological and stratigraphic evolution arguably display significant variability in different geotectonic settings.
The scope of this Special Issue is to highlight the similarities and discrepancies in the basin fill architecture in similar tectonic regimes, and within the same basin. This Special Issue will also decipher the variations in the spatial and temporal development of depositional environments in different tectonic regimes.
This Special Issue welcomes high-impact original research and review papers that discuss the types of sediment accumulation associated with the tectonic setting, and link the findings with global models. It is highly encouraged that research papers integrate several aspects of sedimentology and stratigraphy (please refer to the Section information).

Manuscript Submission Information
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. All submissions that pass pre-check are peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short 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 thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Geosciences is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 1500 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
