World Journal of Geomatics and Geosciences https://www.scipublications.com/journal/index.php/wjgg <p>World Journal of Geomatics and Geosciences(WJGG) is a peer reviewed journal dedicated to the latest advancements in geosciences. The goal of this journal is to keep a record of the state-of-the-art research and to promote study, research and improvement within its various specialties.</p> en-US World Journal of Geomatics and Geosciences Structural controls mineralization in strike-slip fault terminals, case study: Kaybarkuh region in East of Iran https://www.scipublications.com/journal/index.php/wjgg/article/view/695 <p>In this study, we have investigated the status of faults in terms of precession and subsequence, and their relationship with vein mineralization in Kaybarkuh intrusive body in East of Iran. At least, three generations of faults are evidenced in Dasht-e-Bayaz (DB) fault terminal. During formation of faults, the stress orientation in the region has changed at least once probably due to DB fault evolution. Mineralization, especially gold and copper, is formed along the third-generation faults and sometimes on the fault surfaces. It can be predicted that mineralization also happened in the tensioned area of Kal-Shur covered by salt playa and Quaternary sediments, which requires subsurface and geophysics studies.</p> Vahid Khademi Mahmoud Reza Heyhat Mohammad Mahdi Khatib Mohammad Hossein Zarrinkoub Hossein Hadizadeh Copyright (c) 2023 World Journal of Geomatics and Geosciences 2023-08-05 2023-08-05 13 21 Hypercycle of Geoscience, Nonlinear Whole Geoscience and Possible Entropy Decrease https://www.scipublications.com/journal/index.php/wjgg/article/view/523 <p>First, based on the many levels and their cycles in geoscience, we research the hypercycle of geoscience. This is the hypercycle as a tool of self-organization applied to geoscience. It may form from a level to other higher levels. These levels influence each other and the co-evolution. Second, we discuss some possible mathematical methods, which include graph, vector, matrix, some equations, similar theories, etc. This method can be developed and perfected. Third, we propose the nonlinear whole geoscience and its three basic laws. Fourth, we discuss thermodynamics of geoscience, and in which possible entropy decrease under some sates, such as evolution and cycles of Earth, etc. Sustainable development of society must study the mode from high entropy to low entropy. Various cycles in geoscience cannot all be entropy increases, and cannot all be originated from the external interactions.</p> Yi-Fang Chang Copyright (c) 2023 World Journal of Geomatics and Geosciences 2023-01-02 2023-01-02 1 12
