Editorial Board

Jorge GÓMEZ TAPIAS ​ is a geologist and has worked as a cartographer at the Servicio Geológico Colombiano for 20 years, during which time, he has authored approximately 70 geological maps. He is the coordinator of the Grupo Mapa Geológico Colombiano of the Dirección de Geociencias Básicas, which was recognized by Colciencias as a research group in 2017. GÓMEZ is the first author of the Geological Map of Colombia at a scale of 1:1 M —editions 2007 and 2015— and of the 26 map sheets of the Geological Atlas of Colombia at a scale of 1:500 K and is the co–editor of the book Compilando la geología de Colombia: Una visión a 2015. Since February 2018, he has served as vice president for South America on the Commission for the Geological Map of the World. He was a co–coordinator and the first author of the Geological Map of South America at a scale of 1:5 M 2019. Since October 2020, he was elected as a member of the International Union of Geological Sciences (IUGS) Nominating Committee for the term 2020–2024. Currently, he is the editor–in–chief of The Geology of Colombia. GÓMEZ is in charge of coordinating all the activities related to the project and the editorial process.

 is a geologist who graduated from the Universidad Nacional de Colombia Sede Bogotá in 2016 and is a copyeditor of scientific and science outreach texts. She has participated in geological and geomorphological mapping projects, petrographic and geochemical characterization of rocks, and geochemical evaluation of soils. Since 2017, she has been part of the Grupo Mapa Geológico de Colombia and is a deputy editor of The Geology of Colombia. In this editorial project, she supports the coordination of the editorial process stages and coordinates the advisory work for the project provided by the Observatorio Colombiano de Ciencia y Tecnología and the Asociación Colombiana para el Avance de la Ciencia; she is also in charge of the writing and proofreading of texts written in Spanish and English and conducts the editorial review of the chapters.
Eliana MARÍN RINCÓN is a geologist who graduated from the Universidad de Caldas in 2017. In the editorial process of The Geology of Colombia, she is in charge of preparing and adjusting the chapters’ figures. MARÍN also supports the science outreach events through general logistics management and maintains the correspondence with and databases of participants.

Scientific Committee

Victor A. RAMOS

Victor A. RAMOS is a CONICET Researcher and Emeritus Professor at the Universidad de Buenos Aires in Argentina. He has been working for more than 50 years on understanding the tectonic evolution of the Andes. His findings have helped unravel the tectonic processes responsible for the Andean Orogeny, from Tierra del Fuego in the south to the Colombian Andes in the north. Professor RAMOS supports the editorial board through the review of chapters on tectonics and the improvement of the editorial process.  

C​ees W. PASSCHIER is a professor of Tectonophysics and Structural Geology in the Department of Earth Sciences at the Johannes Gutenberg Universität of Mainz, Germany. He is the president of the IUGS Commission on Tectonics and Structural Geology and has been the Chief Editor for the Journal of Structural Geology since 2008. Professor PASSCHIER is responsible for the oversight of structural geology in The Geology of Colombia book.
David BUCHS is a professor at the School of Earth and Ocean Sciences, Cardiff University, United Kingdom. Professor BUCHS is working on seamount formation and accretion, as well as the magmatic and tectonic evolution of the Isthmus of Panamá. Currently, Professor BUCHS is a coordinator of the international Erasmus+ program, editor of PLOS ONE and advisor to the Panamá Canal Authority. Professor BUCHS is reviewing geochemistry for The Geology of Colombia book.
Agustín CARDONA is a professor at the Universidad Nacional de Colombia in Medellín. He is working on the geological evolution of the Andes and Caribbean, convergent tectonic settings, geochemistry, and geochronology. Professor CARDONA is reviewing geochronological and Colombian geology for The Geology of Colombia book.
