Canadian Journal of Earth Sciences
This special issue of the Canadian Journal of the Earth Sciences celebrates the career of two of the greatest geologists of our time, who, during the last three decades of the 20th and the first decade of the 21st century, have put their stamp on the tectonic interpretation of the Earth’s behaviour (Burke also extended his efforts into extra-terrestrial space). How fortunate it is for geology that they are both still active and, by all appearances, are likely to remain so for some time to come. It is an immense honour for us as their students and fellow geologists to introduce this special issue with a few lines about them whom we have had the great privilege of knowing closely both as colleagues and as friends.
