Abstract

The first Special Issue published by the Canadian Journal of Earth Sciences in the field of planetary sciences consists of a collection of nine papers on astromaterials, planetary geology, and Earth-based analogues. We describe the milestones that led to the development of the planetary geology and geophysics (PG&G) community in Canada over the past 5 years, which culminated in record-breaking attendance at a special session of the 2011 GAC-MAC-SEG-SGA Joint Annual Meeting held in Ottawa. The idea of a Special Issue was met with enthusiasm by delegates from coast to coast. By connecting the fields of earth and planetary sciences, the Canadian Journal of Earth Sciences pioneers a new vision for geoscience that expands the options available to Canadians who wish to publish their research at home.
