Fields of interest: Earthquake prediction, sunken continents, global tectonics.

For over two decades, under the leadership of the NCGT Journal Founder and Editor-in-Chief, Dr. Dong Choi, the NCGT Journal has been a beacon of light for researchers needing a voice and platform to publish their research and offer new concepts that pushed boundaries and challenged established thinking. The "new" NCGT Journal is committed to that same general purpose.

The NCGT Journal has evolved over the years from a journal focused on tectonics to one that now addresses other fields, for example: climatology, seismology, oceanography, solar and solar system physics, and earth sciences.

It is our fondest hope that those who want a source for innovation in these and other fields of research, will continue to support the NCGT Journal as it creates the commercial base to become a lasting pillar of knowledge for tomorrow's "evidence-based" science.

                           "What is today's contrarian science, may become tomorrow's established science."
