In order to highlight the time profile for the different plots, I would like to "merge" (put them next to each other, if that makes sense) together the log scaled x-axises and present the data in a single plot.

You can change the margins using par(mar=).  If you want things closer 
together, shrink them.  You might also want to leave off the boxes 
around the plots; use bty="n" for that.

For example,

x <- rnorm(100)
oldmargins <- par("mar")
mar <- oldmargins
mar[c(2,4)] <- c(2.1, 0.1)  # shrink the sides
par(mar=mar, mfrow=c(1,3))
plot(x, bty="n")
plot(x, bty="n")
plot(x, bty="n")
